Tazer Map

Tazer and its sibling Phazer are some of the most technical lines in the Northern Bridgers. Tazer is the right or northernmost line directly above The Great One. It is about 10 feet wide and slightly off angle for most of its 500 feet. There may be a cornice at the top, depending on conditions. This line is certainly one of those "do not fall" lines due its steepness and exposure above The Great One. This line is a little more technical than Phazer in that it has a tight rocky crux of about 4 feet halfway down the line. Once down the main line, you will be in the middle of The Great One. Head fall line down into Plane Crash Bowl or left into the lower section of The Great One. Head skier's left to get back to Fairy Lake and the road out. To get to Naya Nuki and The Great One, take Fairy Lake road to the summer parking lot and head up the trail to Sacajawea. Keep going South to the South summit, Nya Nuki.
