Mario Gully

Pick your way through the tight trees in the upper part of the drainage, and then you'll see it open up.  If there is enough snow, there are pillow options aplenty straight down the gut.  Venture left or right and the drops get bigger, up to about 20 feet if you're feeling good.

At the bottom of the gully, don't miss the skin track that cuts left underneath the east-facing parts of the Terrain Park.  Follow this all the way back to the Dream Lake trail (Don't drop in thinking it'll take you back to your car, it won't).

Details

This is a Side country area off the left side of Wolf Creek Ski area.  It is out of bounds/inbounds.  It is in there area but it is considered non-lift served.  Many people access it with out tickets but at any moment the area could care.  When you park in the parking lot it is the obvious hill to the left of horseshoe bowl and it is labeled on the ski area map

How to Get There

Start from the far lookers left end of the parking lot.  Take the A-way run down to the Alberta lift.  From here start on the right side of the lift and skin a along the lift for 20 feet and cut under the lift fallowing the cat walk (Camino del Monte).  Once at the base of the Hill head to lookers left and continue skinning up the left side.  Once at the top, drop and repeat until done.  Then take the cat track back to the Alberta lift and ski back up to the car.
