Analysing terrain data
Did you start heading down Ridge Run before deciding you want to head back to Ellie's? Instead of hiking back up or traversing through the trees, look for the signs to Ellie's Swing, found just about 200 feet down from the top.
Ellie's Swing itself isn't especially exciting but can be used strategically to skip the top section of Ellie's when it's been scoured by the wind.
You can also change your mind again and head to skier's left to enter Liz's.
