T-Bird Trees Map

Look for T-Bird Trees near the top of the small rise on the hike past Thunderbird. It now has a sign post on a tree. There are two options here; to the left is trees all the way to the skirt at the bottom. When this line is good, it's one of the best on the mountain. The right side starts with a narrow, critical column which feeds into the trees halfway down. This is classic Taos Ski Valley.
