Description

Dog Leg is a technical, extreme line that spills into Hunziker Main. Lots of snow is needed here for the line to be skiable, yet deep snow can work against you and make the real line harder to find at the top. Don't go in here alone. Better yet, see if you can get a qualified local, or patroller, to take you.
