Another popular backcountry ski route in Rogers Pass, 8812 bowl offers a straightfoward descent with plenty of fall-line skiing. Be cautious of the approach on Bruins Ridge.
As with the access to Hospital Bowl, follow the Connaught drainage until just passed the first Hospital gully, then ascend through the trees. Once in Hospital bowl, gain the ridge on the skiers left. Essentially follow this ridge towards 8812/Balu Peak, but be very careful – there is a very steep convex roll that can have high consequences.
