    New Expert Terrain Opening at Marmot Basin!

    Posted in the Rockies thread but I'm so excited it needs its own post.

    North facing and big vert! New rocks to hit. So pumped.

    Joins up with the Caribou Knoll out track.

    This exit trail will for sure be the new hardest run on the mountain

    they said they did their homework when placing the paradise chair so it should be a 1 chair lap.

    Despite living down the road, I haven't been to Marmot in at least 25 years. I'm thinking I need to make a trip.

    Did you guys ski that new zone as a slack country area prior to this year?

    Nope. It did get skied a little, but big fines and loss of pass. Permanent closure.
    It will be a fun piece of terrain. It will be typical Rockies expert skiing though; thin, wind loaded, very rocky and thin with the chance of rocks. Probably thin and rocky too...

    By mid season I might be able to help. Its tight here though. I believe Costco has cheap tickets.

    Its a beautiful place to ski. Thin snow but no crowds. Come after Feb 15 so Wildlife closures are lifted and you can do your last run off the backside.

    Absolutely. If you aren't hitting rocks you are doing it wrong. Every ski I own are my rock skis. You get used to it.
