Union Meadows YELLOW Map

This run is marked with a yellow circle posted along the trees at tree line. This also is a bit of a traverse to get to but with effort comes reward. It has a few great pitches leading to the skiers left side of a large open bowl with a ton of great natural features and rollers. If you continue down and to the right you will find the waterfall road which will lead you back towards other ski lifts. A great option to ski some soft snow days after a storm.
