Description

I provided this route as an alternative to the one already posted.

In general, the route I posted sticks to lower angle terrain.

However, I wasn't happy with the untrack we followed through the lower section of the avalanche path that hits the lake.

If I did it again, I stick in the more dense trees until reaching the plateau where you veer more lookers right towards the upper moraines.

On the way out we explored Paget Glades.

I don't think Paget Glades warrants being it's own destination but worth checking out if you have energy on your exit from Odgen Bench AND you are okay with low angle skiing.
