Description

Shlushman's face is a great place to find mellow turns all year long. You can either hike up and ski it from the top, or traverse North from the chair to access this area. There are a few trees, but no cliffs and skiing is really easy here. It gets hit a lot, and bumps will form on Slushman's Face. It can get sun affected, but has a slight North aspect, so should stay cool except on the really hot days. You will have to traverse a little to the right as you get close to the bottom of the Face, there are large cliffs with no way through down there.
