Description

Humphrie's Hollow is a nice tucked away powder short that faces North. During the operating season you must access this line from the Madman's shoulder. You cannot traverse into it via the Humphrie's Traverse while the chairs are turning. If you can get into it, it will definitely have nice cold snow. You will only get about 10 turns in Humphries before hitting the North Bowl Road. Skiing down to Humphries is pretty technical, with tight, steep trees and a few rocky zones. Be sure to head towards Madman's when it starts to open up, not right. There are large cliffs to your East.
