It's been many years since I've skied North Pole at Abasin. Would you say it is the same as or harder than Gauthier. I ski Gauthier every year and am wondering if I still could do North Pole.

Yeah, the entrance to North Pole is usually a little sketchier as I recall, but otherwise, Gauthier (and much of Palli) is tougher. Unless there's a ton of snow, it can be a pretty tiny skiable slot to enter the North Pole chute. Often looks scarier than it actually is...nothing a little billygoating won't fix. North Pole just feels like more of an "event" due to the approach and entrance. Good skiing on both!
