4k uphill in 6″ fresh powder and 4k non-stop downhill. The downhill is definitely worse for being able to walk after. But it is so much fun!
I just might have to do it again before we leave tomorrow.
I could see the whole valley at the turn around point. But that was probably only half way up the mountain. Any higher and the clouds would have ruined the view. I will have to come back in the summer and go right to the top. Unfortunately we are going home tomorrow.
The bikers and snow boarders love hiking up and flying down.
12% average slope. A little less slope would have made it more runnable especially with the snow. But the periods of fast hiking kept the heart pumping.
Another one for the epic list!
