Parry's Peek Uphill Map

Parsenn Bowl is a harder-to-reach territory beyond Mary Jane, home to open faces and bountiful tree stashes. Parsenn can sometimes reward you with fresh tracks all day, especially because sometimes it’s open for uphill when the lift isn’t turning. This territory may close for weather or control work, so just pay attention to signage on the mountain.

Description

You can lap the bowl all day by climbing on the route shown here, which is is Parry’s Peek along the outer ridge of the bowl. Along the panoramic ascent, you’ll pass many blue and black tree runs that you could choose from, or you can continue all the way to the top of the bowl and rip open slopes off the top. All the runs funnel down to the bottom of Panoramic Express, where you can head up again or follow Corona Way back to Mary Jane Base. Note that if Panoramic Express is running, uphill is normally allowed on any open trails in the bowl, so you don’t have to ride all the way out to the lift before turning up for another lap.

Winter Park allows all-day uphill access on almost any open trails. Be sure to review their uphill policy and how to get a pass.
