They have an event during easter. If you find an egg on the hill, it contains things like lift tickets and season passes. I think it's meant for kids though. If only someone had a kid that I could borrow...

Couldn't you just skate/ride along the upper traverse back over to the normal path back to the frontside off jupiter? With enough speed it requires minimal skating.

theres a saddle on the ridge between the two lifts, super short hike though, 100yds on a cat track. So many good lines off the front between DD and Tye. Chief Bowl is probably the easiest way down. Patrol used to let us hike up the ridge from tye early season before DD was open.

I've never been off any lines on that side except for right under the tye chairlift. I'd love to get shown a few lines on that side. I really shoulda tried DB on one of the pow days.

Careful between Tye Bowl and Shims, tons of places you can get yourself on top of a cliff when you don't wanna be. I still don't even know that zone as well as I should. Probably the last inbounds spot I hadn't gotten to know really well. Fun stuff, just beware of the multiple cliff bands.

Yeah I went up yesterday and it's pretty rough. I didn't realize how hard it was to ride on spring snow. I thought my snowboard was broken and something was dragging.

Lots of cliffy areas off of the ridge, hard to scope from any angle. Start exploring, be ready to hike out

Slow soft Slushy spring days, time to huck your meat in the park.

How late is Stevens spinning lifts. It was first weekend of may last year.

One ball jay black magic summer slush wax is the best.
