Golden Grin Map

Coming off Solitude, stay high left to drop into the trees between Golden Eagle and Peregrine. The result of chasing this steep glade is a Golden Grin ;) Hit this on a packed powder day and you still might find some good stuff. The trees are tight and open up a bit. This will dump you out onto either adjacent trail.

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
