East Portal Trailhead

We skied this in a storm and it was our first time up there.  So I didn't get a good look around.  We skied the north east facing aspects just to the southwest of the first large lake in the forest lakes area.  We skied mellow terrain but there looked like there was steeper chutes above us towards the ridgeline to our south.

A better area to ski might be if you take a left off the trail towards forest lakes and head towards arapaho lakes, up trail 818 as labeled on the nat geo trails illustrated map (#103 for this area).  It appears you gain elevation more quickly and may have more sustained, slightly steeper terrain - which would be an improvement over the aspects described above.
