OXO PUZZLE PEAK RAMP

Oxo/Puzzle Peak Ramp, also referred to as Watermelon Ridge, offers some great low-angle skiing. The ramp is huge, and has plenty of space for several laps. The main source of exposure is the east aspect of the Dolomite ridge. You can minimize exposure to this by immediately heading east once Dolomite ridge and the ramp come into view.
**Update – November 26, 2018: A significant rock slide has occurred on the face of the ramp. There is still some skiing on the far lookers-right side, however the slope may be prone to further slides in the near future.
