This has been one of our favorites from the mid 70's and beyond. Hard to beat 4200' of vert and the snow gods are always smiling on Jackson! As noted by others this is no place for beginners and weekend novices. When you come here be ready to push your endurance to the max.This place may have the best expert terrian in the US, love the views from the top. Makes me sad (not!) for the none skiiers that will never see what we all have experienced from the top of the mountian.We felt that some locals seemed to obligated to make sure you knew you were just a visitor and your mere presence is annoying. I would like to remind these nice folks "Visitors" make it possible for this hill to exsist and supply jobs so you can transplant your elitist butt to this garden of Eden.That said, you get back what you give out, you smile , I smile, we all smile. Love this place!!!!
