...our local mountain! It's typically amazing snow and zero lift lines. Nice laid back atmosphere and you feel like you're part of the EC family when riding.
I'm not a skier, but my wife and I have driven up the mountain just for the views. It's prettiest on the way back down, when you can clearly discern the silty stream coming into the ocean from the Mendenhall Glacier melt off.
