yep stone creek is the place to be. may get tracked, but still super fun. at the upper stone creek gate, hang right immediately, staying next to the ropes. then make a few turns and you'll find like 40 feet of gnar in front of you.
but srsly in stone creek you're hard-pressed not to find the gnar (pics on mi profile..)
beavercreekextreme.com used to have stuff...but it doesn't seem to exist anymore? idk my computer won't load it.
as for vail, i think BC is a little more fun, northwoods is fun. check out prima cornice for some steeps and gnar. also check out the dragon's teeth for some fun, mellow drops. good practice.
and as for food, don't miss the FREE COOKIES at the beav. they are warm and delicious and given out at 3:00 by ski school at the base.
