Description

Pondorf's is a popular way to get into Mundy's Bowl South. It is wider than ski length and can have really nice wind buff in it. It gets sluffed out regularly, but doesn't see the affects of the sun. It is only about 150ft long, but is really fun. This is a better way into Mundy's then traversing. There are few rocks to dodge, and Pondorf's is usually really clean. Head South from the top of Schlasman's, you can keep your skis on all the way to the top of Pondorf's, which is just before the first steep hiking section. The first two turns will be the steepest ones, then it mellows out quickly.
