Classic view of Mirkwood and Orcs from the top of Elation. Troll’s Nose is the sunlit rib in the middle of the bowl and delineates Mirkwood Bowl from Orcs. This is a fun feature to ski and has a few different options depending on which route you drop. It also provides some challenging mitigation work for our patrol and cat guides. Steep terrain with cold, north facing slopes. Don’t fall off the nose.
