One day last season alone, I must of racked up an easy 100K' of alt gain hauling over 65 6' fences up the hill from the bottom to the top in the wee hours of the morning and then spending the rest of the day towing over 200 athletes to the start from the operating lift. Each tow was an 800' run.

Does this count, damn right it does. Especially since I have to physically do all the labor involved, which is a buttload, trust me, from 9K to 11k on a regular basis.


Dear Mountains,
I'm giving up early this year. See enclosed sled/fence/wee hours testimony.
Signed,
A real candy-ass

Thanks for the memories! I last skied on Mt Taylor in 1983! We got a late start, and the soft snow started to freeze over so we turned around... for a rather uncontrolled descent! We then went for dinner at the 4B's that used to be in town; while I was waiting outside the women's room for my wife, I heard the hot air dryer go on about 10 times. Turned out that she was drying her butt! She did a lot of sitting on the way down, to reduce her speed!

Just 3100' and 9 miles so far! Hey, I've been sick. Yesterday we went over this ridge, then drove over and hiked up the dark butte to the right. Both trips were led by a 76-year-old guy; I would guess that he puts in a lot more than 100k' per year, since he generally does at least 2 hikes like this per week.

Woke up this morning to 1-2" soft snow on my lawn in Vegas, so I may temper my trips to slickrock for a bit.

I have to know where that is! Arrow Canyon? I'll be in Henderson in a few days visiting family.

Much easier to get to than Arrow! Northshore Peak (start SOUTH across from the outhouse on Northshore Road, by the pull-off- DON'T take the BLM trail N of the road!).

Roughly as in this map:

I''ll send a GPS track if you want one.

How was access? When you skied in, did you have to go a great distance cross country or are access roads plowed to some distance in?

The only road that was plowed was the main road, and then it was still covered and compacted snow from the large number of cars/trucks that had been up that way. I was able to get my 2WD Element up pretty far past the "end maintenance" sign, and 4WD was required past that. We saw plenty of trucks up there (hunters, sledders, snowshoers, other maniacs looking to play in the snow) making some pretty deep inroads and not getting stuck. I'd say we were pretty close to the trail on Friday, turning only a few hundred vertical from the summit due to extreme cold and wind (and fairly thin coverage up top with wind crust, which makes for not so nice skiing).

Hope this helps! :)

Cheers,
