Jacque Bowl Map

You'll have to hike quite a ways out to access this bowl though it's worth every step. Simply follow the West Ridge Traverse and leave the designated backcountry gate located at the end of the ridge. From here ski down to the base of the bowl and hike straight up it. It starts off flat but steepens significantly in the middle of the run. It does flatten quite significantly towards the bottom of the run so make sure to carry your speed. Absolutely worth doing if the snow conditions are safe and if you're willing to hike the arduous distance.



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