Yeah, you have to know the mountain pretty well to make it on a board going looker's left off of 2 on a deep day. It took me a couple of cuss filled slogs through near waist deep pow to get that. The run into that little dip is nice but that dip gdts way wind loaded and it's really tough to get through it on a board. Gotta avoid that dip.
Once you get to know that mountain, you learn to just avoid 2 altogether. There's some decent terrain off of that chair, but there's better terrain with less people elsewhere. 2 is basically the gaper lift at Love.
8 is great! There's some mild terrain that you have to avoid on deep days, but the trees and the steeps are still in play. Definitely gotta know the terrain over there though to avoid some unpleasant hiking.
