Lower Coffey's Map

Lower Coffey's is much like the Upper, with a smaller chute out the bottom. Beware of sun affected snow, and thin cover. Ski past King's, into Conehead's making precise hop turns through ledgy trees. Fade to the right a couple hundred feet down and find a nice chute with a technical entrance. It will be pretty thin and may be unsupportable around the rocks in this section- take it easy. Once through the techy part, you can swoop down into the North side of the Z Fan. Watch out for the heat vent around the rocks just before the South Bowl traverse.
