Description

Hence the name, Honey Pie is super sweet. You'll find an open pitch in the main section of Honey Pie heading towards Stevie's and a big rock in the skier's right section (5-15 feet) that takes you towards Quick's. On the left side of Honey Pie you'll find some light trees with some pillows (5-15 feet) lower down on your left; if you stay above the pillows to the left you can catch the Pungee/V-Tree Chutes to Tower 11 Chutes, after the pillows you can stay left for Tower 10 Glades or head right to the bottom of Stevie's towards the Paradise Lift Glade and "Easy Out" Exit to Paradise.
