Big Jay

It is a steep face with lots of big trees up top.  Down towards the bottom, there are some drainages and a lot of thicket that you will have to battle through.  Just remember that just because there are tracks, they are not necessarily going the right way.

Due to the illegal cutting of trees, there is a large scar that looks like it would be perfect to ski, but is off-limits to skiers.

Details

This is a bowl that is tucked back in off the North Face of Lobo Overlook.  It previously has had large avalanche implications as it is a perfect angle.  Lately it is so skier compacted on a regular basis that I do not foresee much slide potential but I would still apply your Avy eyes.

How to Get There

Head back on the Lobo lookout road until you see the bowl pictured.  Hike either up the left side ridge which is steeper and more direct or follow the road which switchbacks on the right side.  Ski down the powder and repeat.
