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

For information to access the starting point for Third 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 Third Bump area has a few features on it's east aspect before heading through an open area and into the forest below.

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

Directions:
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 past the second bump feature and along the climber's right side of the third bump feature. Curve around to the left as you pass moraines to your right to arrive at the top of the third bump. Ski down the east side where you will find a tree laneway before entering the forest. If heading back to the parking lot you can also connect the open areas below all three bump features to link up with the Exit Drainage.
