Description

Take the Castlerock Double to the top, ski Liftline to Rumble. About half way down Rumble you should see the entrance to skiers left. This makes for a great addition to a Rumble lap. Take Rumble down about half way and look for the entrance skiers left of the trail. You can traverse in as far as you are comfortable with to your desired drop in point. If you traverse far enough you will connect with Poop Chutes, but this will cause you to miss out on a lot of the skiing. If you want Rumble Woods, don’t go anymore than 70 feet in. Rumble woods is fairly tight with the occasional stump or rock in your way. As you ski down, watch out for for these as they can pop out of nowhere. The pitch remains relatively consistent until you pop out on Toll Road. You can ski back to the Castlerock Double or ski all the way to the bottom.
