Outer Limits Traverse Map

Outer LImits traverse is a great way to ski the powder in the apron below Northwest Direct and not have to get gnarly. It starts at the dogleg of Hidden, about 400ft down from the top. Take the traverse to the North from the first snow ledge you see after rock faces. Be careful as you traverse here, you are above a couple very gnarly chutes. Outer Limits is only about 150ft long, and soon you'll be into the bottom of Northwest, skiing smooth open pow.
