Description

Mine shaft runs directly under the Saddle Chair.

At the top there are a lot of options, so just follow the good snow.

To enter the main gully stay skiers left of the chair - it is steep and narrow but a lot of fun.

As with a lot of the saddle, it can get tracked out quickly and ends up as a mogul run, but for a first lap on a powder day you can't get much better than this. Another firm locals favourite, get there first for the best turns Be prepared for heckling from the chairlift if you choose to hit Hollywood Rock.

The abuse is well worth it though.
