Description

Beautiful out of bounds skiing, mellow south, south west facing slope. Best to ski in the spring after there has been decent snow accumulation and some freeze thaw cycles. It can be a very rocky area so even though it is backcountry and not as many people ski there try to ski where there are tracks if you do not know it well. make sure to check avalanche report before heading out to this area.
