Lower 110's Map

The Lower 110's are a south-eastern aspect glade above HWY 40. When there is new snow, this can be a great area to fun turns, but beware that it is more avalanche prone than other places in the 110's. Along with a slightly steeper pitch, the lower 110's also offer some cliff jumping possibilities. Be aware, though - the SE aspect means there is often a sun crust, which would not be fun to land on from one of the larger cliffs.
