Description

The Things are a couple of rad shots that are short, but really aesthetic. They are only 400 feet, but both are walled in by the rocks. The skier's left one is wider and little less steep- about 20 feet wide and 35 degrees. It is located directly on the top of the knob above the sled gully. The one to the East is about 10 feet wide and 40 degrees. You can find this one in a notch just down from the first, about 50 feet. Both run out into trees before flattening out, so be ready to throw on the brakes near the bottom. One of the better ways to start your day skiing in Frazier Basin.
