Description

Fin Town is a really fun area if it fills in properly. It takes a long time for the snow to build up and is best after a dense snowstorm. It doesn't get skied too often , and never has moguls. It can get sluffed out by patrol, and sees a decent amount of sun. This area has a few different main ways down narrow chutes that will put you into the mid level of Close Call. Hike around the corner past Caravan, drop in anywhere from here to where you'd start stepping up to Ft. Benton. Ski fall line down towards the trees, and find whichever chute looks the best. There are no blind corners in here, it's all really straight forward. Be careful as you get to the bottom of the chutes, you will probably hit a traverse that comes out of the North side of Caravan. Continue skiing fall line down Close Call.
