"O" Glade Map

From the Loco outbound gate, you can ride down the ridge of fairly dense pine trees into this “O”rgasmic aspen tree run. Or you can ski halfway down Loco and cut right around the ridge for an easier access to the Aspens. However you get in here, be prepared for exploding face shots on a good powder day and a crusty sticky surface (hoar?), which is from old orgasms several days before. Ski down straight till Beano’s cabin where a cat trail will lead you back to Talon’s lodge.
