Abelin's Map

Abelin's is a super quick run that doesn't get skied too often because its so short and close to the Bridger hike. It does hold some really nice snow, even days after a storm. It is a moderately steep line that rolls off into cliffs as you traverse out towards the bottom of Man Man's. Start by hiking half way up the Bridger hike to Mad Man's. After getting geared up, head fall line to the East, sort of paralleling the boot pack. After a couple hundred feet, this run will start to pitch over, start looking for the traverse going North from the bottom of the patrol lift. Take this traverse over to Humphries Hollow and the bottom of Mad Man's.
