Tail Feathers Map

Just right of Redtail, off-piste riders can find a section of Aspen trees that descend in a rolling manner. Traverse high to reach the far right line that can take you through some wood and gully obstacles. It is recommended you ski this with fresh snow (8” or more) as the face is usually sun-baked and can make you ski and look bad. But the exploration can offer a little more adventure to the typical RedTail run.
