Featured Descent

Mt Toll

From the Summit.  The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll.  there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir.  Both of which provide nice turns.  Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.
