Mine Dumps Map

Mine Dumps is located through the backcountry access gate next to the rock house at the top of Chair 1. Starting above tree line with occasional exposure, the run is steep for the first few turns before becoming a good mix of open trees and rolling meadows. Head skiers right to get back to the common parking and hitching spot at the bottom. The run goes directly down to the pass road, so arrange your own shuttle back to the ski area or get ready to use your thumb.
