Amazing day at nakiska - hiked out of bounds up and to the right of the gold chair. Came down a big bowl with knee deep powder into a ravine with a creek that ran back into the gold chair runs towards the bottom. Met two affable locals on the hike, one of whom woke up a skunk and got what was coming to him. Still, one of the best days of the season for me. Nice mix of pow, jibbing and bombers.
Ok, where is this? We were there on Sunday (probably the 3rd time I've been to that hill). It was good in the glades, for a while.. but I didn't even know you could get out off the main runs there!
is it a long hike? And I guess that its just further out to the right beyond the glades boundry? or are we talking skiers right and into the middle of the hill?
P.S., has anyone tried the drag lift on a snowboard? the banking at the start looks a bit tricky
