Upper Baby Bear Map

Upper Baby Bear is a Northeast facing open shot through trees. It is only about 100ft long, but can have pretty great snow. It gets skied a fair amount, but is pretty fun. Follow the skier's right side of Steamroller through the trees at the bottom. You'll bust out into a 75ft wide shot that rolls over. You can either head right towards Powder Park or North towards Lower Baby Bear. You could also head down the North Bowl Road to the Goldilocks traverse to just around the first corner. The snow will stay good in here, but can get bumped out. There are some nice techy trees, chutes, and cliffs between Baby Bear and Mama Bear.
