There's an incredible amount of terrain to ride if you're just prepared to hike a little. You'll be surprised to find perfect wind constructed quarter pipes and huge cliffs with smooth landings only a couple of hundred meters from the slopes and the lifts. in other words, you don't have to know the mountain to find the riding spots.
