Description

A classic steep double cliff through tight trees. Depending on snow depth, the first drop averages 5 feet and the second 10. There can also be a lot of twigs and rocks showing in both landings making it really technical. If you are going for it for the first time, you can sideslip down to the lowest point near the tree then just 90 degree hop and send! Don't be afraid to side step back up and out to the skier's right but do not go around to the skier's left.
