Description

An open face along the SE side of Silver King ("The King") that leads into a variety of glades, chutes and cliffs (see run descriptions for more information).

The SE side of The King offers plenty of great snow and steep terrain for experts willing to hike for it.

Access through the first Southback gate and traverse to Kirner's Cornice where the boot pack to the summit of The King starts.

Hike to the top of the King.

SE Left is the treeless triangular slope between Lizard's Back Ridge and SE King Right Proper.

The first few turns can be wind-effected or wind-loaded.

The run fans out and quickly turns to a glade that holds fresh snow days after a storm.

The most obvious fall line takes you to Divider Chute (see description) but by traversing left or right when the trees thicken can bring you to some delicious secret stashes.
