Second Bump Headwall/Trees, Mount Jimmy Simpson
Waputik Range - Alberta - Canada
Banff National Park

For information to access the starting point for Second Bump Headwall/Trees, on Mount Jimmy Simpson, please see the Bow Summit ski zone page.

Below the bowl feature you will find three small "bump" features along the often packed skin track. These features offer a short open section of skiing before entering some of the thicker glades found in this ski zone.

The Second Bump has some larger drops than the other two, again found on the east aspect. The open skiing is also a bit longer lived here but still nothing to write home about.

Likely used more often as a way to get back to the car after a day of skiing up in the bowl area.

From the access point head down a short distance before skinning up the obvious bump feature with the skin track staying on the climber's right. After going around the first bump continue along the track up the second bump feature and into some light trees to access the high point. Either ski the headwall feature or ski down on their side to join up with the open area below before skiing trees to the flats below.
