North facing powder haven.









Hoops Gap is full of little drops, narrow chutes between the trees, and even a few wild cliff areas.

Follow underneath the Thunder lift line past Tower Three Chute and into the tree alleyway.

About a hundred feet before you encounter the Thunder Run, duck skier’s left into the trees.

Hoops Gap is a choose your own adventure type of run with no definitive path to guide you.

Follow your nose and keep an eye out for any signs.

A sign will most likely indicate a large cliff, and each large cliff in the area has numerous trees in any potential landing zones.

Best to start slow until you gain enough knowledge to ski the area with speed.

Exit onto Amphitheater, and quickly hop on the Thunder Lift to do it all over! Hoops Gap is one of the quickest laps to a quality powder run on the mountain.
