Yeah - skied the trees/shrubs under the gondy as my last run yesterday - there was even a fairly open/steep face to the skier's left of lower Valley View. Not a route I've ever considered before (and not normally one that would be recommended). But this year it was sickly good/deep - the whole mountain is "if you see a line...ski it...". I also found tons of fairly untracked stuff to the extreme skier's right in Pio Ridge (tight trees, but skieable)...this area has been mainly ignored so far this year. Enjoy!
Ahh the beetle-trees, one of my favorite ways to end the day. Actually skied that identical line (valley view shrubs to beetle trees) around 11 yesterday and it was nice. Those can get tracked pretty quickly because it's an easy way to avoid pushpiles at the end of the day. Everything yesterday was great... got up first thing (5th chair or so on 4Pts) and stopped around 2 when my legs finally started giving out and the stashes started getting tracked. Have more all day meetings for the next 4 days so unfortunately have to watch everyone have all the fun. However I do think yesterday would have been better than today with only 3" overnight and 3" since 5am... at least I'll keep telling myself that. Tomorrow might not be another story.
