Description

This line can be accessed from the top or from booting straight up it. Snow coverage can vary, but the best time of year to ski this is going to be later in the season. As you drop in be aware of coverage as the line gets SW exposure. Most of the line is W Facing so make sure to start hiking this line early. Once you are ready to drop, enjoy nice long steep turns that open up to the bottom. It is recommended to hike this line from the bottom. Keep in mind you may not be able to hike to the top of this line or access it from the top
