Maggie's south peak
Maggies has two summits, split by the summer Bayview Trail. This is the route out to the Janine Ridge and Dick’s Peak, as well to the saddle in-between Maggies’ two peaklets. Parking at Bayview Trailhead on hwy 89 is just above the south side of Emerald Bay. You do not need a Sno-Park Permit, and we have never heard of any parking issues here. This is where tourists park in the winter to check out Emerald Bay. The north and east facing trees above Granite Lake provide excellent skiing, with wide spacing and nice views. Steeper and tighter tree skiing can be found directly beneath the south peaklet for expert skiers. Do a few laps in the trees, because the skiing beneath Granite Lake is usually more of the survival variety. Follow your skin track back to the car, descending the snow covered fire road you found on the way up. There are real dangers to be avoided while descending Maggies. It is recommended that you ski near your skin track until you have explored the area a few times.
