National Geographic Bowl is located beyond the closed boundary atop Granite Peak. Groups exit the boundary north of the peak, skiing a variety of terrain, from steep, aggressive lines to mellow, low-angle trees.

Tram Ridge is located on the north side of the ridge between Aerial Tram towers 1 and 2. This zone can be accessed utilizing the chairs at Squaw Valley, making for quick laps.
