earning your powder turns - backcountry skiing @ Whistler
Whistler's backcountry Boundary Bowl leads to huge Flute Bowl. Skiers (on trail at right) walk/slide 1/2 hour up to Flute peak - see the trail's path winding up left. It's one of the most spectacular patrolled backcountry bowls in North America.
Earning your turns was never so lovely as in the 700-acre Flute bowl, which starts around 5500-feet in the Alpine and transitions into glades. See below for Summer version of Flute, use the trail as a reference point (it's in same location both seasons).
