In the larch area. Not bad rock exposure at all (unless you're jumping off the cliffs)... Holds snow for a LONG time it seems! I'll post some pics of the area soon.

Nope, although that area looks good too. Hard to describe where it is, better to meet up one day at the hill and share stash locations! lol

A little lower I think but you've got the idea. The tower with the wood bracing around it, into that open area with tons of little cliffs/drops, great powder, sparse trees... Love it!

Yeah I was looking for a number on it the other day, didn't see one. Anyway I'm sure it's not a secret or anything. You can see the whole damn area if you stand on top of ptarmigan and look at the larch area! I guess most people don't go in there because you have to either cut through the trees or take the lift line down to get in there. It's worth it for me cause those drops are exactly the size I need to work on. And the fresh snow doesn't hurt either.

Was pretty sick today too, sun was shining and lots of untouched stashes all over the top on the north side
