Description

Floral Park is a zone of western aspect tree skiing that is fairly steep. The aspect, however, means it gets a lot of wind exposure and isn't well protected from the sun. So, the snowpack is often deceptively thin in Floral Park. Also, since the pitch in Floral Park is near 35 degrees, it slides fairly regularly. Be aware when you reach sections in the trees that open up more.
