Red Lady Bowl is wide open bowl skiing at its finest. You can either drop in on the eastern slopes before reaching the summit, or the south slopes from the summit proper. The east side often gets wind-loaded, while the south side is generally relatively safer. Don't be fooled, though, with a slope angle right around 38 degrees this bowl can be very avalanche prone, and although it gets a lot of traffic, should only be skied during stable periods. The southern face of the bowl will begin consolidating earlier on in the year than other aspects, so this can make for a fantastic late winter/early spring run if you're lucky enough to catch it on a powder morning. After skiing the main bowl, you'll follow a river drainage back to the trailhead. Keep an eye out for fun little kickers on the sides of the drainage.[more]
