Full review

I was fortunate to have a monstrous powder day here with a friend of mine. Thigh deep all day, and the light fluffy stuff just kept coming, filling in tracks all day long.

The diversity of terrain and how lots of areas linked kept an entire day of bombing pow run interesting and different. Signage needs to be better as we’d end up in weird spots and have to traverse the mountain again.

There are some seriously flat spots that could be really tough to be stuck on. Just bomb everything on a pow day and you should do OK.

Never got to Mineral Basin as avalanche danger was too high, but that looks like a sick spot as well. Look forward to going back and giving it a go.
