House Rock / Weather Station Map

When you get off the Silver Queen, your first option on the left is the West Side traverse; if you head a little further down, you'll see a side step on your left up into the trees if it is open. This side step takes you to the Weather Station. Here you can descend left towards the Silver Queen through the trees and varying tree chutes into Forest. If you stay right you'll find a lot of rocks with Tibetan prayer flags along them that aren't really skiable in a low year. Stay right around these rocks and there is a bigger rock in the open known as House Rock. This pitch below it will put you on to the Ruby Road where you can stay left into Forest or head right back onto groomed runs and International.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
