Description

A pretty mellow bowl with some great powder skiing. Look for the snowgun on the right side of the Bananas flats and enter near here for the longest run. There are tight trees at the top that you have to make your way through, but it soon opens up into the bowl. This will take you under the lift and you exit via Black Forest which can be very bumpy. This is your secret afternoon powder stash.
