mushroom people

A mellow area, but if you’re looking to play with some pillow lines, this is a great spot. More work to get to than Ross Pillows, but it’s also typically less busy. Be aware of the exposure from overhead.

Noteables: pillows, storm skiing, low angle

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Park at the Illecillewaet Valley Parking Area, about 4km west of the visitor centre. From here, follow the standard route to the Asulkan valley (stay right at any of the forks). Shortly after entering the valley, you’ll come to the Abbot slide paths. The Mushroom People area, just beyond these two paths, will be visible at this point. There is a patch of trees lookers left of Mushroom People. Typically, the uptrack is set on the lookers left edge of these trees.
