    not true. not patrolled but certainly not off limits in the winter (my wife thinks its my weekend home). I believe in the spring/summer it is off limits due to bear mating season or something like that.

    This plus Slide brook access is making the ME pass start to look better and better.
    while your looking at google earth, check out the area north of the Exterminator trail which is great woods skiing. there is some crazy stuff in there off the ridge line and extending well beyond the on map portions.

    I was totally eyeballing that zone this morning! Looks like a lot of potential and easy connecting back into the resort via Northway or Brambles.

    Decent cliffs or drops back there?

    Thanks for pointing this out and confirming my hopes about that area. =)

    Is this "huh" because you disagree it takes minimal effort?

    The ridge between ME and CR looks to be about a little more than a mile. Not bad really but maybe there is something I don't know about up there?

    Man thats nothing. Sounds like its maybe a bit more bushwacking than "hey lets head right over there" kinda thing, but who says thats a bad thing?

    I do probably twice that with every Four Pines lap.

    Agreed. I'm all for a bit of a bushwhack for good lines and pow. The Long trail runs the ridge...can't be too bad.

    Do you mean Four Pines @ J-Hole? Bushwhacking out there is easier in my opinion.

    Not sure if the "Huh" is disagreement or you just never bothered going all the way across. But, before the Slide Brook chair went in the shuttle busses heading south used to be a bit crowded at the end of the day. So rather than risk having to wait a bus or two we would shoot across the ridge. The Long Trail was almost always already packed down, and the couple climbs in my opinion were quick and easy. To me it was not only minimal effort, it was also a time saver and bonus Castlerock.

    I do. And I wasnt really referencing bushwhacking to get there, but rather it not a line of sight thing like with Four Pines where you can see how to get there, as well as the entire run, from the Sublette chair.
