Description

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.

Difficulty

Severe

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

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Remoteness

2 out of 4

Away from help but easily accessed.
