I though it might be NBC from the map....but there are quite a few double diamonds in that area on the map.
Really enjoyed the pics! Thanks!
So, Big Mountain is now Whitefish Ski Resort? Why?
Went there a couple of years ago for New Years week. Absolutely ridiculously cold, but had a great time!
Yes, you'd head down the Ant Hill on the right side, giving Moe-mentum a miss and heading thru the gate ahead of you then cutting to the left instead of following the ridge.
In the view of that ridge below, you'll see a dip with fewer trees on it relative to the rest of the line of the ridge and I think that is where NBC is accessed. I normally go down the side you see here. I just don't have views of the back that I can find easily that show it. I have one view of the other side (below) but it's not the half that has NBC on it.
Really? I thought First Creek was accessed just a bit further along, getting to the trees and then cutting in. Not sure how you would get to the dip I referred to from that entrance, it seems like you'd have to go up hill. But....Sibby stays away from both of them. My daughter, on the other hand....
at first i thought it was North Bowl Chute, but looking at the trail map, First Creek is further up the ridge( closer to Dons Descent) than NBC. i think NBC is in the area with the rock bands and drops littered all over it. One of the snow ambassadors at Big Mtn once told me that it was First Creek in that area, and that most people get East Rim Confused with NBC. So im not sure. its one of those 2 runs though.
