Glad you enjoyed the thread. Magic Mountain is about 30 miles south and east of Twin Falls. Here is a map:
When you drive there, it's easy to assume you're lost. Driving up this canyon road that looks like it's nothing but desert and sage brush, you can't imagine there's a ski area up there. Once there, though, you can see that it's definitely a spot that gets snow and is just a small, fun area. We had a great time there and got some awesome snow!
Edit to add:
Here is a clip from Magic Mountain that we shot when we were there in 2008. The mountain was actually closed the day we were there but the manager met us there and fired up the lift so we could shoot. It was nice to have the only tracks be ours but, from what I've seen at most of these small areas, we likely would have been some of a very few that actually go off piste to hit the fresh. You literally can get untracked in the trees and off piste for a few days after a storm at most of these community ski hills.
