Forbidden Gully Map

Forbidden Gully is a great place to find old preserved powder and wind buff. It starts just beneath the Outer Limits traverse, try to find the way through. You'll be skiing protected powder between the upper sections of the aprons of Hidden and Northwest. It is really only about 250ft long, but the turns in here are high quality. This area never sees the sun, and doesn't get skied that much.
