FATMAP difficulty grade
If you are heading down Cinch from Spruce Saddle Lodge on a powder day and have an itch to ski some trees before the base, head towards Ripperaroo Retreat (a Kids Zone).
Just before this kids retreat, veer right into the Aspens and ski an adult retreat of low-grade glades down to the Rose Bowl lift line.
You will have to avoid some tree clusters and gully features at the bottom.
But you won’t regret the top section.
This southern facing slope gets sticky with sun!
