From the summit, cut through the trees to return to the second headwall. At the bottom of the first snowfield/meadow, pick your way through the trees staying left (most people take the gully and cut left) to another prominent meadow. One more group of aspens, and the third meadow becomes apparent. Just beyond the trees at the bottom of the third meadow is the road where you started.
Numerous variations exist into some rather tight trees, but this route is well-traveled enough that you can get pow turns in the meadows and follow tracks through the trees to the next mostly-unskied meadow.
If you are skiing early season, keep in mind there is a lot of deadfall and broken leg potential lurking under shallow snow, especially in the aspen trees.[more]
From downtown Flagstaff this is the largest peak that you can see on the left side of the mountains to the north of town, Humpreys is hidden behind it. This peak has alot of different lines coming from its summit in all directions. Its most classic line is the Monti Vista chute that is visible from Flagstaff. The ski resort is also built on the west ridge of Agassiz allowing for easy access.
