Description

Take Summit Lift Chair to the top and exit to the left.

Follow the traverse to the overlook ridge line passing the "Fantasy Ridge" entry gate on your right.

You will be able to see this entry right away.

If open you may enter through this gate to ski the Twin Lakes area or hike up to the Wolverine Cirque.

The area I have mapped out is avalanche controlled by Solitude Mountain Resort.

Enjoy some turns down, do not ski too far right, otherwise you will end up on a flat lake and sometimes it is hard to ski out of when you have to break trail through new snow.

Ski fall line with intentions of going left, at the end of the slope before you ski into the lakes Dam you will see red signs and a boot pack.

Take this boot pack up to "Solbright Trail" catwalk or ski back into the Summit Lift terrain at Solitude.

If you have skins it will make it easier to walk out of this run, but you do not need them as long as you stay high left until the boot-pack.
