Description

Follow the Royal Elk traverse over to the out-of-bounds line. Ski down along this line between tight trees until you see a channel open to the right. Follow this through some fresh sidecountry, it will lead you right towards center. For something different, try cutting left after a while and find a powder glade with usually more snow and fresh terrain. This will dump you out onto a cat trail which leads you back to Grouse. People often collide at this intersection so slow down and be aware.
