Humphrie's Traverse Map

The Humphrie's Traverse cannot be skied during the operating season. It is for ski patrol only. It helps you get out of Abelin's and into Humphrie's Hollow. There are very large cliffs below you as you head North into the corner of the North Bowl. Before and after the operating season this is a great way to find quick powder turns, just be mindful of sluffs and slides that could carry you over the cliffs above the North Bowl Road.
