Windows #2 Map

Windows #2 is slightly steeper and tighter than Windows #1. The trees are tightest on the skier's right side of the woods, so as you proceed down Windows #2 keep slightly left, so as to stay in more open trees. Once you get to the windows run out, stay as far right as you can and be aware of the creek. Earlier in the season the creek is very noticeable, however after big storms the creek can be difficult to spot. The higher on the right side you stay on the run out, the easier your exit will be to manage. On a powder day Windows #2 will get tracked out quickly, so get up early.
