Gated Access to Double Black Diamond Terrain

Heather Canyon, Clark Canyon, Private Reserve, S&R Cliffs - our most advanced and challenging terrain!

When the gates are open, you're in for one of the most exhilarating, pulse-pounding thrills a Northwest mountain has to offer. This terrain is phenomenal and serves up experiences you'll remember and brag about for a lifetime.

Access to Heather Canyon, Clark Canyon, Private Reserve and S&R Cliffs is through control access gates. It's a spectacular experience for expert skiers and snowboarders only. You should always ride with a partner in gated access areas, and carrying a beacon, probe and shovel are highly recommended.

These areas are not patrolled on a regular basis and avalanche danger exists at all times. You may be entering tightly wooded and cliffed terrain. Beware of waterfalls, creek holes, and other unmarked obstacles.
