Description

Get off the Orient Express Lift, and head right towards Mongolia Bowl. Shortly there after, you will hit the gate into Siberia and Mongolia Bowl. Take a hard right at the rope line, and follow the long stretch down. Follow it as far as it goes, avoiding the temptation to drop in early. This will set you up for some epic tree skiing. The rope itself is fine to duck under as its not out of bounds, it just separates Siberia and China. Have fun in the trees, and check out the fun cliff bands and boulders around. The tree skiing can get very tight and steep, so this is definitely a line for good tree skiers.
