Pipeline 2 Map

Pipeline 2 was cut by locals as an alternative to the much tighter and steeper Pipeline. Unlike Pipeline proper, the entrance is much more obvious. After entering Upper Goat, begin immediately looking for an entrance to skiers left. This entrance is often overlooked by skiers looking for tight moguls on Upper Goat. Once you enter, the pitch drops down toward Nosedive and remains about a ski length across. After about 10 turns, there is a split. To skiers right there is usually a mandatory air with almost no run out, to skiers left you can escape cleanly into Goat Glades.
