This winter, mountain to doorstep

moved to a new place this summer. turns out that i can ride ob from Hellroaring chair, down a face to about 100 yards from my place. my neighbor says it was done alot back in the 70s and 80s. planning to reblaze this train and use it alot this winter!



i will have to duck a rope, and be ready for anything, but it's not far, or steep

red dot it where my house is, you can see the chairs in this one...



stoked!

Do you have a gopro or other POV camera? I'd love to see a ride from the peak through hellroaring basin to your place.

yep, got a contour, some sunny day i will film it for posterity...and getting up to the hill is cake, i can get dropped at the bottom of the mtn road, which is right in the way to town, and either thumb it up to the resort or catch the shuttle
