One of several intermediate trails on the east side of Pass Powderkeg Ski Area in the mid elevation area between the water tower and the Dale Strandquist double-track trail. It runs close to the downhill flow trail, Berma-Grin, and crosses it twice.

The trail name is reminiscent of Florence Lassandro, who was involved in bootlegging liquor in Crowsnest Pass during prohibition, and was hanged for her part in the fatal shooting of a policeman.

Access Info

Trailhead: Vehicle parking is available by the Skills Park/Albert Stella Arena located at the bottom of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill.
