Description

Right Side is on the South half of the Never Never bowl, ending at the Waltz rock. It is almost always in the shade and holds awesome soft turns days after a storm. Most people have to traverse out of it, which may be why it doesn't get skied very often. Drop In before the hike up just before the top of The Nose, and after the middle of the Never Never bowl. You will have 400ft of fall line skiing, with little distraction from the terrain. On a powder day, this area is amazing. At the bottom, you have to either head towards The Goat Traverse to the right, go through a tight straightline or large cliff down the fall line, or go left out the Never Never traverse to the left. Either way, you will be stoked you skied Right Side.
