Description

The only bad thing about Dick's Cliffs is that they are South facing and can get pretty baked up. Besides this small detail they are awesome. There is an upper band that is a little more technical and treed, but you can easily find a good line through especially mid season. The second band has more prominent take offs, and one large sender on the skier's right. You can take most of these airs as large as you like, the North Bowl Road is about 150ft below them. Just be careful after a warm sunny day. Head up the Bridger hike to the North. Take the Skier's Traverse to any of the Chutes. Ski down heading a little North then head back into the North Bowl. Dick's is very easy to find.
