Description

Lower Cirque can be found by traversing skiers' left from the bottom of Carrie's Run.

Traverse about the small lake and sidestep up a short ramp to the start of the run.

Lower Cirque is a great run as it offers advanced skiers a big mountain feeling run with limited technicalities.

There is a chute that you can straightline in the middle of the run, but this is totally avoidable by doing a traverse around it.

The run remains pretty wide open and the exposure is limited unless you take the traverse around the straightline path.

After this section, enjoy some really fun turns all the way to the bottom of Backside Bowl.
