Yes I know this isn't Powder Project, but it's significantly more traveled so.... 

Not looking for anything sketch or even necessarily much downhill as I'll be solo.  But looking for suggestions on some nice tours via the east entrance.  

Thanks in advance

Bear lake TH...take Fern Lake trail around towards Flattop Mtn trail but keep doing on Fern Lake towards Odessa Lake. You'll arrive at the base of a big ~25 degree lightly treed slope which is the N. side of Flattop and a popular skiing area.  You can poke around and maybe make some very low risk turns there, or continue around the corner until you're looking towards Notchtop Mtn and it's drainage.  Beautiful, mellow, and great for a solo outing.
