Geno's Meadows Map

Geno's Meadows is a widely-spaced glade that offers a great introduction to black diamond glade skiing. Since it's easily accessible off of Ramble On, Geno's gets quite a bit of traffic, meaning the glade can get bumped out quite quickly at times. Nevertheless, the wide tree spacing still makes it a great time!

Description

For the easiest skiing, stick to the line as mapped. If you traverse further to skier's left, you'll end up in much tighter stands of trees that drop into a tight creek valley with some tough double fall lines. While there can be some good snow to be had in this zone, it's tighter and more technical riding.

Difficulty

Moderate

Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.

Best time to visit

January, February, March, April, December
