Description

Predator is the extension of Sunset Ridge along the CBMR boundary as the terrain naturally joins Funnel and the Pygmy Spear Garden. If you stay right on Sunset Ridge along the rope line, you'll find some thick trees to navigate as the terrain rolls over but the powder on the other side will probably be worth it. As the trees open up along the rope line, you'll be able to make some fun turns back towards the right into the bottom of Funnel and the Pygmy Spear Garden. Follow the rope line to get on the Banana Exit.

Difficulty

Severe

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
