Porcupine Saddle is a ski run at Loveland Basin. It's a very long walk (and an ugly ski shuffle down the rocky south-facing back of Wild Child) for a low angle run, but Porky really benefits from wind deposition of snow, and it's
great quality low-angle snow. Fun to get away from it all in Porcupine Saddle as well - take the high skier's right traverse and you'll probably be able to look at
your tracks all alone all day when riding up lift 2
or lift 6.
Uphill hiking is prohibited on the Porcupine Saddle ski run, but you can maximize untracked turns by maintaining the highest possible
traverse to the skier's left.
The best and deepest snow on Porcupine Saddle tends to be near the top. There's a great deal of wind deposition from the surrounding
higher terrain, and from the scoured windward slopes to the west of the Continental Divide. Snow will usually lie in this basin for most
of the summer.
Porcupine Saddle is located just to the south of
