Description

The terrain is serious and avalanche prone and the end usually requires some combat skiing, bushwhacking or at worst some hiking.

From the old Station on the ridge take a hard left.

Many options exit in this flowing terrain but make sure to traverse back to the old mid station lift before the terrain gets tight, steep and incredibly hard to navigate.

From the station take your skis off and take the summer hiking trail which starts on the left of the building down to the valley floor.

Allow 30-40 Minutes.

In exceptional snow you can ski some or all of this but it is an extremely tight quick footpath you are following
