I only hiked once before the entrance to the traverse and then traversed at the top to hidden valley, not sure that was a good option tough but that's where my friend took me, if you drop where the traverse is it gets steep close to the traverse and if you miss you might crash badly because most of the time it's a narrow traverse, best would be to ski from the top of hidden valley after the traverse, but I haven't hiked up from there.
Taking the traverse it's best to drop before the nw passage trail because that's where the steeps terrain is, if you go all the way to the end of the traverse there isn't much to ski unless you hike, but the hike is worth it, lots of features and tons of snow since not much traffic the traverse itself doesn't get much traffic as well
found this video that gives you a good idea
