Lucy's Rib Map

Lucy's Rib is more the divider between North and South Mundy's then a ski run. It can be skied though, especially later in the season. It is an East jutting rock ridge that starts at the main Bridger ridge. A couple of traverses cross Lucy's, so watch out for them while trying to ski this feature fall line. Lucy's can get sun affected, but doesn't get skied a lot. There may be hollow snow around the larger rocks. Get to the middle of Mundy's on the ridge by traversing South from Schlasman's chair. Once on Lucy's, make careful turns, anticipating rocks and traverses. The lowest third holds the most rocks because it doesn't get skied too often. Exit Lucy's into either South or North Mundy's.
