Description

The Other One is the 1200 feet South-facing line you look towards when on top of the Great One. It consists of an East facing upper bowl for 300 feet, then a hard right and another 500 feet of couloir skiing. The chute is really wide, about 30-40 feet at the dog leg, and wider afterwards. It runs out into Plane Crash Bowl. It is pretty easy to climb the line from the bowl or hike down to it from the top of Sacajawea. Late season this is a really great corn run.
