Olympic Bowl is an East facing avalanche prone bowl to the skier's right of Olympic Ridge. There is threat from avalanches and also the possible threat of cornice formation. Once you get down into the drainage below the run, you also face avalanche threat from above you on the skier's left. Once you follow out that drainage to the East, you can either skin back up to the parking lot or take the long runout to Old Pass Road.
