Description

4.5 Finger is a nice way to keep skiing fall line instead of heading into the Z Fan from the bottom of Job 1. It often holds good snow, but the sneak can be narrow early in the season. As you near the dog leg at the bottom of Job 1, head a little to your right through pecker trees above the Angry Chair cliff. You will eventually see a notch in the rock to your right, head over here and make a few careful turns getting into the 4th Finger.
