Description

An excellent steep option off the main piste trail of Turbo on a powder day. This line gets skied quick so get it early. This is a no fall zone as well because of the tree exposure and tightness of the chute. Enjoy nice steep controlled turns down to the bottom and follow the traverse back out.
