Analysing terrain data
The entire Saratoga Bowl area is convoluted, The vast amount of trees, boulders, and narrow strips of open run makes it hard to discern particular runs.
Crowheart is basically the widest open section of Saratoga to the skier’s left.
Follow one of the narrow, single track traverses from the entrance of Saratoga just below the top of Apres Vous Quad (about a hundred feet below the ski patrol shack) for a few hounded feet until you see an opening in the trees and follow it.
Virtually impossible to describe, runs in Saratoga require an intimate knowledge of specific trees or boulders only gained from experience.
The good news is that there are no wrong ways, just follow your nose until you hit the boundary line, then hop on the Saratoga Bowl Traverse (an undulating, single-track traverse heading skier’s right) back to the Apres Vous Lift.
