Description

This run is not on the map. In order to access it, get off the Village Express lift at the mid-station. Head skiers left on Liftline then make a right onto Scooper. Head down Scooper until you reach a cat track and the top of the Scooper Poma (drag lift) Head just left of the Poma into the tight trees. It's a short little pitch with some steep sections and some flatter sections. The steep sections are equal to double black diamond steepness. It also has some great drops if you're looking for some air. This is a great secret stash on a powder day.
