Sidehorn Trees Map

Located skier's right off Longhorn trail, locals call this glade "Sidehorn trees". This area offers natural features, rock drops, long Aspen glades and technical tree skiing. Sidehorn trees are a great powder day stash spot for deep powder turns and great tree lines. Head down Longhorn trail about 75 yards to the second pronounced fall-line pitch. Dip into the Aspen glades for well spaced lines and protected powder. This stash is popular with locals so get there early. Follow the line down to Chaps and Pony Express Lift line.
