These routes are ideal for splitboarding with more fall-line descents than most "ski tours." There are many options for descents in the East Peak\Bullion Basin area. Be sure to travel with beacon, probe, shovel and a partner. Please check in with ski patrol to get up-to-date conditions reports and adhere to the Uphill Policy.
