Mines Runout

The gully below the Mines 1 and Mines 2 slide paths is the only viable way out from either of those lines or from Vortex, and while it can be fun to cruise out the gully in good snow, it’s also a really bad terrain trap. If either of the Mines paths run you can get 20 feet of debris in the gully in a matter of seconds. You can usually mitigate some of the danger (at least of remotely triggering a slide) by staying on the far right side of the drainage if the snowpack is touchy.
