Analysing terrain data
Sourdough is steeper than what a first day beginner would like, but most they will find this a great place to learn and work on turning and stopping.
This is away from the mess at the bottom and has a wide open feel to it, although there are a few tree islands to give it some personality.
The views are better here, the chair is fast and usually not as crowded as some of the other beginner spots lower on the mountain.
Do note that the final pitch is steeper and could be called a blue.
