The Southern Flow route is a nice 2-3 hour loop between the West Bragg Creek trailhead and Hwy 66. Most people do it counter-clockwise. If you do it the other way 'round, Strange Brew is more fun to descend than Ranger Summit.

Park at West Bragg or Allen Bill for easiest access.

Descended this Tuesday (Dec 20). Lots of drifted snow, some firm enough to carry a rider, some not. Becomes more consistently rideable towards the valley bottom.
