Is that the lift that is going up peak 8 at Breck? I really don't think it will seem like such an accomplishment without the 40 minute walk to the top. You want to see an eastern ski racer gasp for breath... try pushing to keep up with patrol when they drop the gate - just to get first tracks. It was worth it though. Not terriably steep... but there was SNOW! Whew... all this talk of snow... I might have to take my skates to the stadium ramp and play "slalom course."
