Snorkelnose is open. After a long, steep, brutal hike up the Willy's Wide staircase skiers can pop on their skis, traverse North and slide through the Snorkel Door into Snorkelnose, maybe the coolest place at A-Basin (and that is saying something). It was my first journey up there this season. It just opened Thursday afternoon. I was expecting it to be kind of rough. I was totally wrong, the skiing was beautiful.
