A short steep glade
FATMAP difficulty grade
A short steep glade, Dick's Face is accessed from Double Black Diamond Terrain.
This run was named for former patroller and long-time local Dick Reininger.
For non-experts looking for a challenge, follow Exterminator Ridge past Snag Chutes and Neanderthal.
Dick's Face is the "nose" at the end of the ridge.
It is steep at the top, but opens into well-spaced trees.
This glade often holds fresh snow longer than its neighbors.
This slope is avalanche prone, and even a small slough can push a skier/rider into a tree well.
Ski/ride with a partner.
