Description

Good Luck Glades can be sweet open tree chutes in the center or tight tree skiing amidst medium to big pillows along the right hand rope line of Third Bowl. Try to stay right if you are trying to catch Smuggler's Knob and Big Tree Chute and stay on the rope line; you'll find big pillows over here on the way. The main tree chutes in Good Luck Glades will bring you onto Lower Third Bowl or the Solar Junkyard/Magic Carpet towards the left.
