Two of the best runs on the front side are North American and Long Horn. Both offer choices of lines ranging from 35 degrees to 45 degrees and see minimal traffic as everyone heads for the Ridge and more obvious terrain off Lifts Two and Four. If it's windy, wait until later in the day; the wind blows straight up Lift One and stuffs both lines with powder. photo by: Dino Vournas
