Description

Sunset Ridge is a beautiful run on the skier's left hand edge of Funnel along the CBMR boundary. You traverse all the way across Funnel and stay left towards the rope line. Through moderate terrain that is best after the sun warms it up, Sunset Ridge eventually drops you into the Hidden Chutes and Predator, steeper tree chutes. You can finish in the bottom of Funnel at the Pygmy Spear Garden and take the Banana Exit or you can traverse hard right under Total Recall to catch the traverse back to Aspen Park Road.
