Thats pretty much all we did all morning. That north face is the competition course that my son is in. Dont get me wrong, Its steep, but not as gnarly as billed and pumped up to be. Initially the drop is nice, it mellows quickly. Fucking tall mountain but the lower 2/3 has pretty much no snow. Cool place over all though. Would love to be here on a full on powder month.

Did you hike all the way up? There's the lemming line and then there is a straight hike all the way to the top which takes 25mins.

Even in the lemming line it varies in steepness depending on how far you traverse. Which is a pain on a board since sections after "drop in" have massive uphills.

I've been there on powder days in feb and the bottom 2/3 is still shit, but there is just so much above those two lifts. I loved the place.

Dunno the names of them all but we hiked up to the very top on the first run. Shitty icy hike. The we did the two chutes below that. Steep for the first little bit. Pow day would be prett fun for thos drops but you gotta run those chutes like a luge today.
