Description

This run is super fun when it is in! You won't find this on the map and rarely know when it is open. Usually open end of the year or in some cases big snow years. If this run is open you check in with patrol and sometimes they ski out the ridge with you or if you know where you are going will send you on your own. This short steep shot is above the south wall area in the bowl, it is an open apron into a narrow quick footed rocky area, finishing in the bowl. When this run is in it is fun!
