Description

The White Worm is an elevated low angle grass and talus slope. It has a gully on the skier's right that fills in early in the season and a shoulder on the skier's left that fills in later. Both are about 400 feet long and offer mellow skiing. This area is often windblown, for better or worse. At the bottom of the Worm you have 2 options; ski the North facing October Chute, or the steeper East facing roller directly underneath the Worm. Most choose the October chute.
