Description

The Morning Glory Reacharound is found on the skier's left side of Morning Glory in the trees. It can be hard to find in powder if the traverse hasn't been set yet but it very easy to find after a few people have done it. The traverse takes you left through the trees across Solar Glaze and around back into Headwall East. This traverse gets you the good part of Morning Glory without having to drop all the way down Teocalli Bowl and hiking out.
