    Thanks, everyone. Really appreciate the votes and comments. If you have ever skied Alpental at night, you know it can be a special place. The picture really captures that for me.

    Only 191 I can find online is in Europe from Snowcountry.eu. I'm sure there has to be some shops with one or two that haven't sold.

    Thanks, guys. That means a lot. Kalisto, your pow shot looks like it could have been pulled from a Lee Cohen book. Absolutely nails the essence of deep powder skiing.

    While I would choose nights at Alpental over Central every time, I can still have fun over there off Central Express and (less so) Triple 60. The long flat run outs are the worst, though.
