An open line to the skier’s left of the Hourglass Cliffs. Watch out for rocks to the skier’s left, and lower down to the skier’s right. After the run, head into the trees down below (the trees are more open if you first traverse skier’s right beneath the cliffs and boulder fields below the run, but watch out for avy danger) and into the Bobsled Run to get back to the road.
