Description

First Virtue is the easiest but most skied of the Virtues. It is only about 60ft long, but can have rocks near the top. There is usually a woopdee where it runs out into Hidden. First Virtue can be wide enough to wiggle turn or even hop turn down later in the year. There is always great snow in here, it may just be skied up. Best to be the first down it. Hike out to Hidden, ski past the second entrance to find the First Virtue.
