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).[more]
Popular backcountry zone near Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. Contains a variety of terrain from safe, well protected trees, to big alpine descents. Be cautious of avalanche conditions, as most of the best descents will put you through the strainer if caught in a slide. Avi conditions are at mtavalanche.com
How to Get There
Access is typically from the Beehive Basin trailhead. While driving towards Moonlight Basin on Lone Mountain Trail Road, turn right on Crow King road, and follow it to the Beehive Basin Trailhead.
