Two things make this run challenging: the entrance often involves a tricky side step over some pesky rocks that are almost never covered with snow due to the exposure, and the extreme steepness.  It should have a sign at the top saying: “Be Afraid.  Be very, very afraid.”  Many people choose to reverse out once they see the drop in.  It is Rachel’s favourite run.

Chair: Peak Chair. Go down Frontier Pass. As soon as you make the first turn onto Frontier Pass stay skier’s right and proceed onto a path that stays higher than the main road. You can also access it more directly from the broad landing area in front of the chair but it’s hard to describe. You’ll be angling to the right. There is usually a higher and lower entrance, but the higher entrance is usually better.
