    I've done both ways. Personally, I liked going from Manker flats to the ski hut up the bowl then down devils backbone. The Manker to ski hut to bowl is shorter, but steeper. The part that is underestimated is after devils backbone when you have to go down the ski routes. It's a lot steeper than you realize. Also, having the lodge to stop at and get a bite to eat and drink before finishing the last downhill of the hike is a real plus.
