Description

R and R is between Werner Chute and Pierre’s. Like Pierre’s, it can be sketchy at the top. It’s tight trees and lots of watching out for dead ends on big rocks. Once you get further into it, there are some great lines through the trees. The line finishes on Longhorn. Ski here with a buddy.
