The Corkscrew Glades are a northwest-facing series of runs that dot a thick pine forest nestled below Tuk No and the massive Mount Tukuhnikivatz. From a distance, the glades look like a cluster of steep, open meadows that thread down like commas, resembling a spiraling corkscrew. The riding tends to be a good bet for soft winter snow that’s protected by the trees, and the approach is a moderate skin on flat, view-laden expanses followed by steep switchbacks to Point 10974. The Corkscrew Glades can be easily combined with Noriegas Peak for a double-mountain day.
