Were is the trail called 'GUNBARREL' ???
You home area have it?
When was it named/opened?
Just wasting time over the 'non-skiing holidays'.
Whistler has the gunbarrels (not sure if it is on the trail map). Apex has a nice steep area
consisting of Magnum, Gunbarrel, 22, Peashooter, Dirty Harry, Make My Day and Winchester - apres available in the Gunbarrel Saloon.
Sundown is a very cool little ski area and Dubuque is a cool town.
Heavenly's Gunbarrel is a long (1800 ft vertical) steep bump run on the bottom of the California side. There are people--Face Rats--who spend all day skiing it and ski nothing else. Glen Plake sponsors the Gunbarrel 25--winner is the first skier to complete 25 laps.
How can an intermediate run be called Gunbarrel? The Heavenly Gunbarrel is the true Gunbarrel. All others are imposters.
Wedged in between Roxoff and Trash Can sits Gun Barrel in the Alpental (Near) BC. You'll only find this designation labeled on some really old trail maps that has marked BC runs and routes, or local Alpentalic brain maps. Some of my favorite double diamond tree riding can be found in and around this zone.
