Powder Guiding Skiing Lr 8

Located in Annupuri on the skiers left of the resort near the bottom of the Jumbo Pair lift #3, Gate 7 is a real feel-good gate where you can enjoy some slack-country pow without the hike or overwhelming consequences.

Stay right as you enter and you find a reasonably open fall line that will help you pick your way down to where the terrain really opens up. Cut right and surf the half-pipe under the chair. Stay left and this is where the powder kicks off and the fun begins. If you are early enough come through the gate and head skiers left for some reasonably steep trees on your way to the powder fields.

It’s when you reach the pow fields that meander along the left face of the area that the full mellow experience of low angle deep pow kicks in. Trees and sunny days make this a perfect place for intermediates to get involved in their first back-country experience.
