Description

Sluicebox is the widest, most open run of the short laps next to the Bridger hike. It has a consistent pitch, and funnels you down directly to the top of the Bridger chair. It starts out very wide, then cruxes down to about 20ft before widening out at the bottom. Sluicebox gets skied often, and can get a little bit of sun affect later in the year.
