Description

For a more reliable and safer descent, drop right of the rest aspect into either chute atop King Arthur and have fun exploring this steep open tree terrain. Be sure to have a “safety” meeting with Andrew before takeoff. The left line is the most common with juicy face shots and modest ledge drops. At the bottom, cut right to seek additional soft lines; let your mind and boards explore before you join the cat trail that takes you back to Grouse.
