The Child Map

The Child is another great place to find windbuff and smooth turns. It isn't as steep as The Drain, but isn't quite as wide either. It is very straightforward, and you can see it from Schlasman's chair. It gets skied frequently and may have moguls. The sun never destroys the snow here, it's very North facing. Ski down Bathtub or Bittersweet to The Bitter End about a third of the way down and head left at the big open chute. You can also just traverse across Mundy's to get to The Child.
