Griz Ridge

All the way down the skiers' left side of Griz Ridge are 8' tall snowfences. These fences do an extraordinary job catching snow right on the ski trail on Griz Ridge. Typically after a snow and wind event, there is a big drift of snow to the skiers' right side of these fences. The cat drivers use the blade of their machines to wind row the snow piles away from the fences, spreading the snow more evenly across the trail. They have already put in a fair bit of work there this season and it is already good skiing.

Considering how good the conditions are on Griz Ridge already and how much side stepping the Ski Patrol has done on Slalom Slope, it won't take much additional snow to get that old Pali Lift open for its final season.
