Description

History Rock is a great mellow quickie and although the first meadow is the most skied up, it is a fun lap nonetheless. Its about 500 feet vertical, and only 1.5 miles from the car. The steepest it gets is around 32 degrees. Park at History Rock trailhead and go right into a large meadow. Don't take the first left but instead keep going for about 100 yards and take your next left up a short bump and into the trees. This trail takes you directly to the bottom of the first meadow. Skin up onto the right of the gully to get to the top. The trail has just enough pitch to allow you to ski all the way out with little effort.
