Default Blackcomb Glacier Question

I went down this run the other day, out the back way of the T bars instead of up Spanky's.

My wife and kids probably cannot do the blue run that goes straight down after you walk up that little hill however it look like on the far left there was a nice channel that was a lot shallower, you might walk around the back of the Ridge and access it at the far skiers right. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts with this?

Are you talking about down the back of the glacier? or back towards the T-bars?

I can't picture it in my head because I haven't been up there this season but are you taking about the 'blow hole' and that kind of area?

Yes, blowhole is skiers left, I'm talking about way over on skiers right.

It's pretty mellow from memory or you can traverse way up high on the right. Its generally pretty decent because people can't be fucked to walk along the track to drop in and its not as steep so there isn't as many moguls

The pitch at skiers far right from the blowhole is much shallower, although its a long traverse to get there. Be aware that the 2nd half of the run is one long cat track - can't wait for the new lift to crystal ridge.

Not to high-jack the thread but I have a real love/hate feeling about the upload spot for the new Crystal chair.
