    I figured it would be a nice evening for sunsets. Problem is, I wanted to get shots in several different places but the sun and clouds kept moving

    I hiked up to the site this morning. Looks like all the footings are in, about half of the walls are poured, and the other half are about ready to pour. They really have accomplished a tremendous amount of work already.

    Supposedly there is also another trail that has been cleared to ski directly from the hotel down to Sherburne without having to go up and around near Mid-Burke.

    I wouldn't exactly call it a "trail". They just cut an opening through the narrow section of trees between the hotel site and High Meadows Pass.

    The yellow section in this plan:

    I hop that they can do something about the section between the Sherburne chair over to Mid Burke. Add a little filler or grade something. Doubt they will. Either way with the new Hotel with bar I am sure there will be not need to go to the lower section so that will not be so important. Talked myself right out of that one!

    Thanks from NEK, that map is v. helpful. I hadn't walked up there, my neighbor just told me about it. Definitely can hear the construction from about mid way between mid burke and sherburne on high meadows...

    If they ever move/remove the Willoughby quad, they would be able to straighten and regrade the traverse. However, as it currently stands, trying to regrade the traverse would be difficult without messing up the intersections with other trails that come down to it (Lower Warrens, Lower Fox's, and The Gap.
    Is it really that difficult to use your poles and traverse a flat for 100 yards a couple times a day? At least it isn't uphill anymore .
