Go to Crystal and head to Northway Peak. All the way right on the trail map. Make sure you keep your speed up on the cat tracks or you will have to push to get there. It it's a pretty long traverse, but once you are there it's awesome. The bowls may be slightly difficult if you only ride blues, but the trees at the bottom are SOOOOOO worth it. Get there early to avoid tons of bumps in the bowls, but the trees stay good until early afternoon since many people don't like the traverse to get there. Really mellow pillows in the trees for awhile down there. I rode at Crystal for 4 years or so, but didn't even discover the awesomeness that is Northway until my 3rd year. The 2 person lift is slow, but thats the only drawback.
