    More accidents will happen on that trail if/when the hotel gets filled and skier traffic increases at the mountain.

    The other spot that is a huge concern of mine is the entry point onto the Shoot...

    Totally agree with the lower intermediate pod of trails…there's no smooth transition for developing skiers to move from the lower mountain to the upper mountain. Deer Run is decent in spots, but has...

    I'm sure that it's good all over. I'd bet the east side is good like NEK said (Powderhorn, Lew's, the east side glades, Dipper Doodle, East Bowl). Looked like winds were out of the NW for a time....

    I don't know if I have the energy to type all that again. This is the first time I have been on here in a week or so. Sucks going back to work after a vacation.

    There are probably more than 30 guns on the Dippers. That's why they usually blow snow on it in parts. They typically drag ground guns onto Carriage Road and open that as the initial route to the...
