Hiked up from the t-bar and skied down SE bowl (Imperial Bowl?). I've done this many times, but now it has lost its allure, with a lift going all the way to the top now. Sometimes a ski area needs to know when to say when.
Took a trip to Breck in mid March to snowboard Breck and Vail. Last day at breck a few friends and I took the t-bar up to the foot access point and hiked up. It took about 45 min and the conditions were windy. View was great, I think it is Copper that you can see on the west side, it was amazing. We took the Whale's Tale down, dropped in off a cornice, and came down the Y-Chute.
Late summer snow made it very dramatic. Beautiful peak.
