Beyond those poles is the DIRECT route down...

On Friday 1st April and Saturday 2nd April Kirkwood played host to the US Freeskiing Championships, with some serious terrain, chutes and HUGE cliff drops on the course down through the Cirque between Eagle Bowl/Chair 10 and Thunder Saddle.

Unfortunately not possible to get close enough to get any good action shots as they had a fairly wide area of terrain to pick a line through, but take a look at the shots of the Start Gate and those from the bottom looking up, can you spot a line you fancy?

Other shots are off Chair 10, The Wall, Eagle Bowl and the superb Thunder Saddle.
