Course Description - Subject to change due to snow conditions

Start climbing Wrangler to lower Chisholm to the bottom of the Lenawee lift. Continue under the East Wall in the flat spot toward Cabin Glades. This portion of the course is on shallow natural snow that has not been compacted by being open to public so please use extra caution. After switch-backing up through Cabin Glade, transition to a boot pack in the Graveyard Gully (Falcon trail area). 

Near the middle East Wall Gate, skin to the Steilhang Hut (the new, unfinished building at the top of Dragon and Lenawee Parks). From there, transition to ski down Lenawee Parks to Black Mountain Lodge. Transition again and skin up Grizzly Road to the top of the Pallavicini Lift. Pass on to the Cornice Run without taking off your skins. Climb the Cornice Run to transition to skiing at Patrol Headquarters / Snow Plume Refuge.

Ski over to and down Lenawee Face, Dercum’s Gulch and pass Black Mountain Lodge. Continue down Ramrod to the Base Area where you started. Transition at the flag. Climb Wrangler again to the bottom of the Lenawee Lift, then turn right up Lenawee and traverse to finish at Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain.
