Description

Start out on the traverse towards the Whale's Tail, but instead of following everyone towards the cornice, drop in early skier's right off the traverse. This can ski very well depending on the time of year. Always be aware of rocks in this area, as coverage can vary. Enjoy nice open turns in the bowl back towards the whale's tail.
