The hike is usually worth it though, for the advanced skier and rider because you will find mostly untouched powder and tree glades.
It’s fairly steep here and never a groomer has been here.
There are some open sections with powder galore (hopefully) and some very tight sections with many trees.
Hike and ride with a partner here as you may not encounter anyone else here the entire day.
If something happens, you’ll want and need someone.
