I was watching a crested butte edit and i realized that the surrounding mountains really add to the epicness of the skiing experience. Which mountains do you think have the best backdrops?

voy10Kinda minor but you can see clear to the middle of PA to the east and the skyline of downtown Pittsburgh from one viewpoint at 7 Springs. Pgh is abt 70 miles from springs and the mtn range at the middle of the state is about 70 as well.
-eREKTion-I'm gonna go with Mammoth. The minarets are badass to the north, the Mojave to the east, and Yosemite to the west.
Yung_JimmyCurious where on the mountain you can see the pgh skyline? I'd love to check it out. I always see it on the way home tho if i take 31 instead of the turnpike. Springs certainly has some nice scenery for being in bumfuck nowhere, PA.
As far as other resorts go, I'd love to visit Heavenly and see the view of lake Tahoe, the pics look insane.

strayln_SkierGuthega in AUS
-arc-As both of us have skied there, we know it's not all it's hyped up to be :(
strayln_SkierI fucking love Guthega.
I park there every time I ski if it's linked with Perisher.
I ski there of a morning before heading over to front valley park.
You have to ski it morning or arvo to get the best of it, hence why I park there.
It takes everyone until like 9:30 to get there from Perisher and before that there is not a soul around and sweet as groomers to warm up on.
Then after lapping the park in Perisher all day you go back at like 3 and no one is there because they have to go back to the shitshow of front valley.
I usually sit up the top of the Tbar unload area late arvo and sink a few beers or ski down to the Pub.
Then ski straight down to my car and drive down to jindy.
Oh yeah.. When theres fresh snow it has the best tree skiing in Aus IMO.
Plus.. It is the last place on the mountain to lose visibility.
-arc-I was talking about the mountain back drop. Honestly my favourite terrain to ski in Aus.
DrailLake Louise has a pretty skookum view
doctor.steezeKirkwood is pretty cool because it’s so far out from the other Tahoe resorts
PataguccimaneId have to add in Bear Valley as you can see the backside of Kirkwood looking up the Mokelume canyon as well as a pretty killer view of Mt. Reba and Mokelume Peak on one side and a view of the dardanelles on the other. Its a small mountain as far as western mountains but the backdrop makes it pretty unique. I'll try add a photo where you can see kwood a bit clearer (its in the second photo in the clouds somewhere)
doctor.steezeYeah man that looks sick, what highway or area is it off of? Been skiing Tahoe for large portion of my life being from Sacramento and I’ve skied most resorts off 80 and 50 before finally caving for the local pass and I’ve never really heard of bear valley
PataguccimaneUp Highway 4 towards Ebbetts pass, pretty secluded in the winter when the pass gets closed. Hidden gem for sure
