Skiing Stockton Flats

Stockton Flats is not the benign glade it appears to be on the trail map. I strongly discourage anyone from entering the region unless they've studied a topo map, are prepared to travel through cliff-bound terrain, and are properly equipped to get out. We all have to make our own choices when it comes to the backcountry terrain we ski. If you want high adventure without the possibility of getting very, very lost, go ski Telegraph Peak instead.
