Description

Where Smuggler’s Alley takes a left down the fall line, traverse straight into the woods. There’s a number of places to traverse in and there’s really no defined drop in. The woods themselves consist of tight, cut evergreen chutes. Since this is a popular spot, there’s woods can be thin cover if it hasn’t snowed recently. These little chutes blend into one glade for the bottom half until you pop out on Shuttle.
