East Nya Nuki Meadow Map

The East Meadow on Nya Nuki is a great place to get out of the wind and ski some more mellow terrain in the Fairy Lake zone. It is about 400 feet vertical and a few hundred feet wide. The meadow starts with nicely spaced trees, gradually opening up completely as you get further down. This is a great place to set a skin track and make multiple short laps. Continue up the East Ridge of Nya Nuki to the Great One for an awesome last run to cap off a really fun day in the mountains.
