Ski lift?

Can you see the ski lift in this photo? I'm trying to figure out what part of the mountain is skiable.

Re: Ski lift?

I don't know how exactly this works. The lift goes up what looks like an avalanche chute on the left. I think you then do extreme skiing on the back of the mountain. I am not sure what happens when you get to the bottom. Maybe they pick you up and bring you back?!!

Re: Ski lift?

My office mate is going to this ski area later this spring. Lift tickets are very expensive and by reservation only. The lift ticket includes a manditory guide. I believe that there is only 1 lift. The skiing is pretty extreme. My office mate says it's the closest she'll ever get to heli-skiing.
