3rd Finger Map

The 3rd Finger is a great North facing tree alley. It isn't that narrow, and will hold some really awesome snow. It can get sluffed out, and gets a decent amount of traffic. Bumps can form in here. Hike to the top of the Fingers, or come from either Job 1 or Boundary Chute. Drop in at the large wooden post and ski the fall line to the South Bowl road.
