You can go right and under the lift too.. traverse all the way to steep cliffy terrain or bomb the steeps reconnecting with 5 and 11

Under Sentinel Bowl there's Cave rock...nice spot with some mini-cliffs


Top of 10 (wall) Go skiers right along the steepest line ( love that) drop in Eagle bowl if it's open or ride the edge of it and end under Norm's Nose either go back down or keep traversing...all good there.

Backside:
Go all the way up to Fawn's ridge (if the ropes are open..or if you hike) keep on the boundary and enjoy rolling hills all the way down back to 4

Drop the Wave...or keep to the left on " Happiness is" one of the best runs out there.

BSide Sleft...similar to 6...lots of steep tight chutes, but a lot of traversing...

End of the day....
start bombing the groomed runs.... Really nice natural half pipe near 11 and one tighter near 7




And more....
Hell yeah. Thanks Kirkrider!

Just do a couple of good runs each lift and move on to the next..I rather wait for the chair to open a bit and get the fresh...then go back to the beginning of the circuit when all is tracked up...But monday you should share that place with maybe other 40 people....

Try to get first chair on the backside.... so good.

Crap, I might be staying out of the trees in that case. My NS doesn't like rocks.

Hey, on a side note. I'm driving from Orange County. I'm gonna stay in a hotel the night before I go to Kirk. I was thinking about staying in Jackon and then heading up the 88 early Monday. Is this hughway subject to closures often or will I have no problem getting up via this route. I have a 4x4 truck and chains.

So the 50 is my only option. South Lake or something that's not on the hill. What do you think?
