Description

Dog Face joins Hunziker about halfway down. You lose the vertical of taking Hunziker from the top, but you can ski some of the trees in Prime Real Estate on you way there. It's a fun open face that rarely sees traffic and holds snow.

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
