49 Degrees North

Looking for info on this hill. Anybody been there? Curious about the terrain an snow.

Like the idea of hitting someplace new but wonder if it is worth the 5-1/2 hour drive from Seattle.

Thanks

We thought about that and have Schweitzer on the radar. This would be a short 2 day trip, would like to spend more time at Schweitzer when we go. There are also a couple of other things at play, we have a limited budget so a smaller resort with cheaper lodging and lift tickets would be better plus we tend to like smaller less crowded places. We were originally planning on going to either Mission or White Pass this weekend and just thought something new and different might be cool. I had chatted with someone last year who mentioned that 49DN had a great vibe and good snow, just curious if anyone else has similar thoughts.

We jsut got back from our big splurge this year at Revelstoke and Schweitzer had been on the list for that trip so maybe next year.
