Mitchell's Map

Mitchell's is a relatively steep area that drains you out the bottom of Bridger Gully on the North side. It can get some sun later in the year, can be a little rocky early, and sees a decent amount of traffic. Head skier's left near the bottom of Bridger Gully. You'll be on a shoulder that rolls off with spaced bushes. Fall line will take you gently to the right, back to Papa Bear. If you resist, and trend left, there is an awesome medium sized air- Gaffney's. Gaffney's cliff is usually 10-20ft, although you could send it much large as the run out is wide open. The Goldilocks traverse is down about 75 feet from Gaffney's.
