Description

The skiers right line--hang right through the gate and discover a powder field that welcomes you kindly. This will lead you into some tree chutes filled with rollers, boulders, and more. There are a few great lippers to huck on the boundary line so look for them. After this first pitch, hang left where you will stumble upon the largest Royal Elk powder field and the options are boundless. Pounce down to the bottom and merge onto the cat trail that leads you back to the Grouse. People often collide at this intersection so slow down and be aware.
