Description

Last Scream is an alternative to the first face of Lucky Shot. For those that want a little extra challenge, and hopefully some fresh turns, find this small opening on the ridge below and skiers right of, The Doors. The top of Last Scream is quite steep and can be rocky on the skier's right. The easiest entry is on the left close to The Doors. Below the first tree island, the slope opens up nicely and ends at the top of the second face of Lucky Shot. Continue here to the bottom of Rainier Express.
