Wide mellow slopes to ski in Balu Pass. Originally set out to do Nicci’s Notch, but visibility was poor and Nicci’s is fairly narrow at the start (~5 turns).
Long approach day. Able to ski out 90% of the way - only a few sections of flat/slightly uphill.
On the approach, there are a few avalanche runout zones - ‘frequent flier’ and ‘STS’. Single file, be cautious.
