Description

Motor Room is a great place to find preserved pow through steep trees days after a storm. It is totally sheltered from the sun, and can hold some excellent snow. It gets a fair amount of traffic, but there are numerous ways to ski it. Ski down B. L.'s or Steady Eddy and head North to the shoulder before Midways and the Apron. Follow this down into the trees. Fight the fall line and keep heading a little right. It will eventually bust out into a wide open shot above 3 Bears Bowl.
