Description

Another popular unmarked glade off the Triple. This is one of those glades that has a name that doesn’t make any sense. When you’re buddy says “let’s go ski The Ledges”, you probably picture something off Mansfield a big cliff line, rather than a sliver of woods off the Mountain Triple. You have the option to enter from either Hackett’s Highway or Hayride. The top portion is a well spaced but can be busy in early season. Once you get lower down, the patch of woods is only a few ski lengths across, but still too nice not to ski. Eventually a river gully obstructs the path and funnels you into Hacketts Highway.
