Also, "some of the westward facing slopes get no sunlight until 3:30 or 4 PM" is simply not true either. The West side starts to get sun by 1:30, even in the middle of the winter.
Large sections of Heuga and Drop off got no sunlight all day, and stayed frozen.
Where Drop Off dumps you onto Belt is quite tame; but the right edge, along the rock wall, stayed in shade all day, and provided a nice 2 - 3 meter wide track to ski fast down to the top of the runout to the HSQ.
