Will's Hill is the slope that is on your left as you're skinning up the ridge toward Peak 10009 (see an overview of Willow Fork). The skiing directly off of Peak 10009 is usually wind-scoured and rocky, so it's more practical to start skiing Will's Hill a hundred feet or so below the summit.

There's a bulge midway down Will's that is significantly steeper than the 30° shown in this info table, although most of the run is less than 30°. It's safest to hang left just before it steepens. If you do choose to ski the steeper section, you will need to wrap around the toe of the ridge which will entail about 10 minutes of poling as you contour around to the exit route.
