Pine Drops begins by the grooming shed just west of the trail head and heads northeast through rolling terrain, paralleling Tangent. It then intersects with Tangent, Mistletoe and the Mushroom trails at the bottom of the Meissner Plateau toward the north. If you cross Tangent road, and continue east, the trail descends through open pine forest and intersects with Snowbush. This is a fun trail with rolling terrain providing a bit of variety when skiing. The climb up from Snowbush to Tangent is a steady, moderate grade all the way.
