Description

Depending on the snow year, this is a fun option off of chair 6. It can ski very well in high snow years, early in the day. Since it is South Facing, it must be a good snow year to ski it, so be aware of the rocks if attempting in non ideal conditions. This route is one option, but you have several others off this ridge. One option involves skiing through or over cliffs skier's right of the mapped line. Feel free to explore this area, but understand that a lot of snow is needed for it to ski well.
