Description

Second Virtue is an awkward line. It is just down a little from the first, and also feeds into Hidden. It is an exposed angled shelf above 10-15ft cliffs where falling could be disastrous. You have to make a couple quick, careful turns to get across the shelf and down into safety. This line gets skied a little less than the First and Third Virtues. You could send it right off the fall line cliffs, but make beware of rocks on the very steep landing and be ready to be skiing extremely fast through lower Hidden.
