Upper Winter Map

Upper Winter is a wide but short glade dropping off of the Upper Balcony. There's an obvious, widely-spaced line through the center of the glade that offers easy, fun turns. To either side of the wide line, the trees are more tightly-spaced but are still navigable. Like usual, the obvious line gets tracked out first, but expert skiers can thread the tight trees for good tracks late in the day.

Description

Upper Winter is a short shot, but due to its position, you can drop Upper Winter and then bang a right into Brutus for a formidable top-to-bottom glade run through some of the best trees on the mountain!
