Description

Hattrup's is one of the more gnarly lines in all the Norther Bridgers. It requires a good snow year to fill it in, and a good colder day to shred it. It starts out with an upper small bowl for about 150 feet. Then it cruxes down to a narrow hallway between rock walls for another couple hundred feet where you wont be able to do anything but keep them running fall line. The line opens up lower down, but is still relatively steep, and you don't have the opportunity to shrug speed until the very bottom of the bowl. A true heart racer!
