Description

To access this run take Sheer Bliss and stay right to take the Rock Island gate. Enter the gate and head slightly to skier's right. You will come to the top of a rock. Depending on the snow year it can be anywhere from 10-20 feet. If you have the skills and courage to drop this you land and quickly drop off the second drop that is slightly smaller. After the double drop it opens up to a wide open boulder field where you can find some great powder and have some fun jumping off some of the smaller boulders. This double drop should only be attempted after checking the landings to see if it is soft and deep. It should only be attempted by the most skilled freeriders with a lot of experience jumping off very large rocks and cliffs.
