Upper East Wall

As we've been talking about, the Upper East Wall hiking is in incredible shape. Both the North Pole hike and the Willy's Wide staircase are solidly established and, with each storm, the skiing and riding gets better. Snorklenose is open with good coverage. It's good out there.

What is the slope angle down those bad boys?

Why aren't the tree chutes and stuff further open anymore? I love that terrain. Just a little more work and you get some nice pow turns.

I'd bet it has something to do with the CDOT avalauncher accident. They need the avalauncher to control that side of the wall.

Correct on the CDOT comment. We are waitig for the investigation to be completed on the accident.

Most of those slope have pitches in the high 30's. A few of the flanks probably crack 40.
