Description

Moonlight Bowl is a short, north-eastern aspect bowl that connects Hidden Knoll to Current Creek Bowl above it. Towards the bottom, the bowl turns to the skier's right and traverses a bit below the XYZ area. In general this bowl is a safer area with a mellower pitch, but it can be threatened by avalanche danger from Current Creek Bench, Current Creek Bowl, or the XYZ area.
