Description

Park or hitch a ride to the top of the road and just drop in where ever it looks good. The first 300 feet or so is above the trees and offers several starting lines, the option furthest to your left will take you into the bottom of the Saddle Run gully. To your right, hosts a more consistently steep pitch all the way to the road. At the bottom keep an eye out for the jumps and log rail features that have been erected by local snowboarders. Be aware this is the most popular area of the pass since it does not require a hike.
