Union and Jove Peaks lie less than 1 mile apart and can be combined into a single tour. However, each peak has unique characteristics and skiers may enjoy exploring them separately. This tour offers outstanding views and wonderfully complex runs in old-growth forests. Jove Peak offers astonishing, steep fall-line descents from a pointed summit down large avalanche paths. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; routefinding required; permit / fee area; snowmobile traffic near Rainy Pass.
