Dr. Snow, Kruser, mw and yours truly started 2011 with a couple of days of powder prospecting at RMR. Fresh snow had fallen about a week earlier, and all of the obvious powder lines had been skied. But, we found a fair amount of untracked powder in the glades of the North Bowl, served by the "Ripper" high speed quad chairlift, as well as the higher "Stoke" lift on the front side.

RMR has exceptional terraine with a lot of cliffs. We found so many cliffs, mostly marked with unobtrusive signs and downclimbed by our party in only two episodes, that we joked about doing the cliff run... Which one?
