    Even though this lift (and probably the mountain) is pretty sketchy, this looks like a hidden gem. The terrain looks pretty good, and I bet that hardly anybody is there on a powder day.

    My understanding is the lift was originally a home built built and at some point and re worked by Riblet. The return and drive are the only holdovers from the original. The lift has a hydrostatic drive that has some reliability issues too.
