Description

While your waiting for the upper mountain to open, a great pow stash in the Teocalli Lift area is known as the Sink. After you pass Meander on Gus's way, you'll see some options appear to your right through the trees. You'll cross a utility road cat track and find yourself above an open gully next to a big private house on your left. Pass through the gully and you'll want to stay straight ahead through the trees, if you have to side step it probably means you'll get a little more powder. As the pine trees fade and the aspen forest starts to roll over, you'll cross a cat track as you ski through the fun, mellow pitches down to where Gunsight Pass meets Bushwacker and Conundrum at the bottom of Teocalli lift.
