Description

R2D2 is a quick, rarely skied rocky spine area between Jobs 1 and 2. It takes a lot of snow to make this skiable, and may never be a good idea. From the upper traverse into Job 2, go right to the rollover, you can see most of the line from here. The skier's left way is the easiest, but you will probably have to do some exposed acid drops to get down even this part. Once through the upper section, ride fluty tree spines down to the second section of Job 2.

Difficulty

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
