Description

Hoop Creek is perfect for the person who wants to get a quick lap in on the pass, because it requires no hiking. From the parking lot at the top of the pass go due south and you will be at the top of Hook Creek. This is a fairly low-angle route that has the potential to hold good snow, on some interesting features, in the trees. You can find small, steeper sections on the skiers left and right of the gut that has some more interesting terrain.
