Last Friday we stopped up there. It is a very small, rustic area. They have a 150 acre lease with one double chair, a few surface lifts, maintenance shack, rental shop, small lodge, and a snowcat all for sale for $250,000. Unfortunately the day we drove up Dave Letterman had rented the mountain for the day for himself and family. We spent some time chatting with a local ski patroller. He told us that all the area above the chairlift (1000 or so vertical feet) was part of the lease and ski patrol did control work up there. It looked like real fun skiing. The ski area also owns permits to expand a chairlift to the summit, this would make for a fun ski area. As we were driving back down the road we stopped to take a picture of a beaver pond when Letterman drove by and smiled and waved at us. We were hoping he would offer us to come ski. Oh well.
Mountains on the way up:
The mountain and lift, the lift ends right below timberline:
Wind scowered in places but fun looking nonetheless
Fun looking place to go play for a day, fairly close to the ski area:
