Y-12 requires virtually no hiking as it is accessed off the cat track at the beginning of the hike up Highland Bowl.
This run starts in dense pines but eventually gives way to a beautiful meadow and steep headwall.
Continue fall line as this double diamond that averages 36 degrees, the perfect pitch, falls away towards the very bottom of Highlands bowl in one final steep pitch.
Don't forget to check out the view of the bowl from below after your run.
This run is south facing, so be mindful of weather and snow conditions before dropping in.
It is always recommended to ski here on a powder morning.
