Goat Glades Map

Goat Glades is a go to powder stash next to Goat. After enjoying some turns on Upper Goat (or cutting in from Haychute), drop skiers left into the obvious entrance. This leads into some short but sweet evergreen woods. The trees are fairly tight and there are occasional drops, but for the most part it is obstacle free. The glades end on Midway, from there you can catch Lower Goat or head to more mellow slopes.
