Description

Starting at the top of the road where the ridgeline for Mt.

Snikau starts, users can hike along the edge until finding a suitable drop zone.

Most of this area is south facing and above tree line therefore exposure to wind and sun is high and can make for inconsistent snow pack.

This area sees very little if no traffic and is a great place to go on a busy weekend when the lines on the east side of the divide are tracked.

Having a ride waiting for you at the bottom of the hairpin turn is going to be ideal since there might be less traffic going your way back up.

Lastly there may not be a bootpack here, so be ready to post hole, or bring your touring equipment.
