Not the finest day at Ashland, as there had been no fresh no for many days. Still, this is one fine little hill. Don't let the tiny acreage scare you away - there are some fine runs here, from the ridge to the bowl. Everything here is small and steep - if you are a first timer, you will probably not get the most out of this place. The bowl is a must-see for any serious double-black-diamond junkie. Some of the steepest terrain in the state, and pleasantly dry when there is fresh snow. No high speed lift to the summit, but the trip is short enough that it hardly matters. Plenty of good food, too, if you forgot to pack lunch. Best bet for dinner is to head down to Ashland - but if you stay for night skiing, you can still grab a decent bite at the lodge, if you prefer. The terrain park was closed for competition, but it looked pretty good to me. Fine for the intermediate and expert, but probably overwhelming if you don't like the steep stuff.
