I don't get what all the hype is with powder, i mean theres no rails or shit to hit- jack-john
If you are referring to the top of the gondola (where the top of the world sign is) there are about a million ways down from there, many of which do not have mandatory airs. Depending on the snow conditions, there are a ton of cool lines down from the top. They even groom a couple of nice steep sections that are a blast to rail switch. PM me if you wanna know anything else....we're up there all the time.
Searby's is doable right now without any mandatory air. Balls and Cowboy are both serious lines, as always. Make sure you have someone below the cliffs to make sure people don't traverse under you before you go.
Ahh in that case yes...Searby's is probably the only one that is relatively tame. I steered clear of Cowboys two weeks ago since there was about 15ft of gnarley exposed rocks on the line in before the drop. That said they have gotten a couple feet since then. Still a seriously high consequence line if you don't point it right. +1 for having someone underneath since you can't see a thing from the top.
