Jupka's Map

Much like Hattrup's Direct, only longer and more committing, Jupka's should only be skied on those perfect days when you want to turn the dial all the way up. Start on the far skier's right (East facing) of the Hollywood Headwall. Ski down about 40 feet, looking to your right. You'll find an extremely steep alley for about 300 feet. This line is more intense than Hattrup's because it stays relatively tighter (for the speeds you'll be going) for the length of the line. An epic for sure!
