Description

Eagle's Nest is in the area on the backside of Treskow. The early part is in the trees, then it loops under an enormous cliff and opens wide to the bottom. The cliff makes it easy to spot from below or from the chair, but also adds rocks to watch out for as you pass under it. Like Twin Trees, this place gets a lot of sun and requires good timing. You can get to it by skiing along the Treskow rope line below the entrance to Twin Trees.
