Description

Lower East Wall is accessed from the East Wall Traverse. Simply take the traverse all the way out as far as you can. You will see the open bowl marked on the map. Enjoy open lower angled powder skiing back down to the chair. Since this area can get sun, the snow quality will be better earlier in the day. Also watch out for small rocks that tend to come out of nowhere.
