Diamond Peak is cute! We went only because I was doing a business call on the Marketing Dept, and they comped me after our meeting. Still only stayed for a couple of hours. It is BEAUTIFUL, but gets boring really fast. Still, we had deep pow, and I went down one of their little blacks and triggered a mini-avalanche! At Diamond Peak, of all places! Slide halfway down the mountain upside down and head first. Glad it was there, and not Kirkwood!
Ha! You forgot the first rule about avalanches. "If it's steep enough to ride, it's steep enough to slide". Though experiencing one in bounds is pretty rare it does happen. I got slid on the Quail Face at Homewood in 92.
