21 - Currie Glades

For strong intermediates and above who want to try a some easy tree skiing, the center of Currie can be a wonderful place. There are a couple of steeper pitches and even some small cliff bands near the top that you have to watch out for though. These are easily bypassed, but a blind rush through some trees could buy you more excitement than you bargained for.

Even though the trees in the main part were thinned a bit a while back, the most recent trail maps have justifiably bumped this up to a black diamond from a blue square as tree avoidance is definitely a required skill. Below where Currie Powder crosses through the trees, the skiing becomes quite a bit more serious, but you can bail out just about anywhere.


Tree dodging is integral part of these glades, but often well worth it.
