Lower Elephant's Trunk

Another A-Basin Adventure Tour. I skied Lower Elephant's Trunk about mid-day. It is another fine tour. I wandered out Zuma Cornice and skied the main part of Elephant's Trunk. I went through the Lower Elephant's Trunk gate and enjoyed some nice turns in some small/medium sized spruce trees. The vertical part of the ski is followed by a nice traverse getting a good look at The Crags and the Lightning Trees. The loop finished with a 10-20 minutes hike up the Hike Back Trail and a ride out Zuma Lift. It was an enjoyable tour with some exceptional views of Porcupine Peak and the Snake River Valley.
