Details

From the parking area, walk across tundra to rock outcrops NE of the Rock Cut. Put on your skis at the start of the snow and ski down the steepening snowfield in a north to northeast direction, heading down towards the Fall River Road. Stop where the snow runs out. The lower portion of the snowfield is fairly steep, 40 degrees in places. Hike back up, kicking steps. Crampons may be useful on the lower slope, climbing skins on the upper portions.
