Fun, ripping descent from Uncle Nazty to Sand Dunes.

Description

Prospector is best done from the lower part of Uncle Natzy down to Sand Dunes. The first part of the route rolls out initially across a broad ridge and then descends quickly through several carving turns and a few berms to Sand Dunes Trail.

From the intersection, stay left to connect with Backbone or hike the bottom of Sand Dunes.
