Jaws 2 Map

Jaws 2 is a technical North facing line that lies between Jaws 1 and 3D. It doesn't get hit by people, and will hold cold snow. There are never any moguls in here. It can sluff out from control, but rarely will fully puke out. Ski just right of Jaws 1, finding the next rock spine down the slope. You'll have to point it early season or hop turn down this narrow chute. The chute leads to a pretty wide and mellow snowfield for about 60ft before rolling over into tight chutes and airs, the skier's left is the easiest exit, but may have rocks in it. You can boost large airs off the skier's right, landing in untouched powder piles.
