West Ropes Picture Not Available at this time

West Ropes is a tree sking area between Sunburst Chutes and Tunnel Face. It's south facing, so it's better skied during good snow conditions. You can drop into West Ropes a variety of places along Zip Trail. I tend to prefer the more open areas closer to Tunnel Face (further along Zip Trail) - these areas have more open glades, and generally better snow quality. There's a micro-orographic effect or wind deposition effect on the higher ground just above Tunnel Face.
