I live about 2 hours from Angel Fire, Wolf Creek, Santa Fe, and Purgatory. The Jeep has new tread and a lift - I am so ready! I actually had the Thule box on top - but realizing there was more 4-wheeling to do I took it off. My neighbor said that when I was riding down in the arroyas all he could see was the black turtle shell moving across the desert.. but it's right next to the driveway READY!

That's funny Steve. I was all set to go visit ale, and I had a trip to Roger's Pass and Kicking Horse in the works, but a new house changed all of that. Hopefully 08/09 season I will knock off the Canada trip. Seattle is still out there, but it's really far in the distance at the moment.

Oh yeah a good touring buddy of mine is moving back to Switzerland. Mmmmmm Swiss powder. I may be coming to Europe in the next two years. Paolo clear you calendar.

i can't say i tried it out to be honest! but the whole area is quite low lying and thus heavily forrested, so for open slopes, i doubt the choices are varied.

but personally, i honestly couldn't say for sure. but i suspect you will find most if not all inbounds to be quite underwhelming!

having said that though, many pistes have big rollers on them and you can inadvertently fly tens of meters if hustling along at a fair rate of knots! just look out for the day glow oranges who will happily relieve you of your lift pass if you are going a bit too pacey!
