EMERALD PEAK

Emerald peak/slide path makes for an excellent ski tour on those cold sunny days when stability is good. The terrain offers up opportunities for wide-open turns higher up, and tree skiing mid-way.

This is a large slide path that see’s avalanches run down to the lake, so be sure of stability.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Head across the lake and up the slope through the trees while avoiding the gullies/terrain traps. You’ll eventually come to a large open bowl. This is a good point to examine the snowpack before venturing further, as the slopes become steeper and the consequences higher! Should you decide to turn back, the terrain skiers right still offers some decent tree skiing.
