Description

Ovation Head Wall (unmarked) is a black diamond trail that people love to take off Nivis Walk. To access this trail, take the Superstar Express Quad to the top and go right off the lift. Take Nivis Walk and proceed with caution. It is very narrow and usually very icy with thin cover. You will pass trees on your right and come to the Ovation Head Wall. This is almost ALWAYS an icy mess with exposed rocks. It is short and steep. If you attempt it, many people go to the far left to get around the exposed rocks before finding a clear line on to Launch Pad. Good luck. Perfect advanced rating for people looking for a short, steep, icy and rocky mess.
