Best ski day ever! I skied 5 runs all day in 28 inches of fresh and was spent. The weather was near a blizzard so we didn't hike much which was fine because the runs right off the lift were fantastic.

It's hard to go back to skiing summit county after a day like this.

Great guides, friendly staff and an epic mountain. I thought I'd mind the hiking, but the guides mix up a couple long hikes with some short or no-hike options. You end up appreciating the sheer beauty of the climb on some of the hikes you'll do and it really does add to the adventure. The terrain is challenging but the guides are excellent. They gave great supports to members of our group who either weren't comfortable with the climb or needed some pointers on how to ski the terrain.

Don't go expecting Vail pampering. Go expecting great terrain, fresh tracks, superb attitudes, and a mountain built solely around the riding, not the glam.

And if you don't want to hike, they'll gladly sell you a heli drop!

Definitely balls-out kind of skiing. Would not recommend if you doubt your ability at all, especially without a fresh snow fall. Since they don't groom or cut trails, the snow is "as is" which might be sun-crusted avalanche debris or waist deep powder. You never know! The mountain is truly awesome and a totally different skiing experience than you have ever had at another ski area. This is backcountry skiing with a measly lift but that does allow for some serious steeps.

If you love skiing and you feel up to the challenge, I wouldnt miss it for the world. There is some serious hiking involved but if you have the right backpack and gear you will be all set.

The experience is soulful and one you will remember.

YOW... This is some unusually balls-out, steep and deep advanced skiing AND bust your butt HIKING carring your gear at a breath-taking 12,000-13,000 ft. Can testosterone
take the place of oxygen?
Wait until you see the funky "lodge", outhouses and Into-The-Wild rental gear bus.
You're not in Deer Valley anymore, Dorothy!
Ask for Fabio as your guide and get in shape before you go. The logo says it all.
Great job living your dream Aaron and Jen!
