this is a restaurant they had on the slopes at what I thought was the top...but then we rode up the last lift and hiked about 20 minutes to get to this peak

elevation ~7,300 ft...the snow was blowing constantly about 30-40 mph off this face (notice the grass) but down the other side there was some nice pow :)

cool! thanks for sharing. was it mostly skiers or snowboarders at that resort?

swilber08 12-25-2010 09:30 PM

mostly boarders...the resort itself was pretty sick too

i plan on going back in future years to better spots when conditions are better
