Taint Map

To skiers right of F.I.S there’s a traverse into Doc Dempsey’s Glade. Below this traverse lies Taint, a tight little chute that drops down to Goat Path. In Upper Taint you are confined to a tight, almost single track glade. Lower Taint starts after you cross Goat Path and is a little more spacious. It also has more paths to choose from. Lower Taint ends on Mulcahy’s Link. Taint is the place to be on a powder day and locals will most likely be headed there early on.
