Description

This line can also be accessed the same way as the Chihuahua Bowl, it just requires more of ridgeline hike from either Mexican Hat or the Lenawee Mountain Hike. Please be aware of avalanche conditions on this line simply because it gets very steep near the top of it and it is SE facing in many areas. It is usually skied later in the season well into May. When you drop in, the slope will be SE facing and it will change aspects about halfway through. This is another great line this does not see much action and can be skied well into late season. Enjoy nice steep turns and follow the skin exit route out back to the ridgeline!
