The new tram lower terminal can be accessed by green runs and is open to scenic riders, making the ride accessible for more than just advanced skiers. If you do choose to ski the peak, rejoin the route at Powder Seeker 6. We recommend starting with Liberty Bowl if it's your first time off the tram.
