Details

We ski up the unplowed road beyond the parking lot for about a mile, at which point the road turns left across the meadow and we leave the road and climb to the right up the valley and through trees to a bowl near the tree line where there are great views. The route is easy/moderate, becoming moderate for the climb from the valley up through the trees to the bowl. Skins make the climbing part of the trip more reasonable, although it can be done with fish scales. Expect snowmobiles. Return same route. We will avoid avalanche terrain. Equipment requirements: skis with scales and/or skins required. Bring 10 essentials plus winter extras, appropriate clothing for the weather, trail food.
