Ascent Trip Report

Fun corn skiing from the summit down into the resort. I should note two fairly major logistical items that never came up in my brief research; firstly, exit 57 as per Summitpost is non-existent, rather you want exit 58. It's pretty obviously marked, though, so other than that the directions are good. Keep in mind that if you are continuing on I-15 south afterward, there is no on-ramp at that exit. You can go northbound to exit 63 and turn around there, though. Secondly- and I'm very surprised this hasn't been mentioned in many trip reports and Pebble Creek's website doesn't even make this terribly obvious- the resort is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays! At least this time of year it is. Some lifties were doing ops training though and generously offered me one ride up. Good timing! Not a bad hike up from the top of the lift and quite an impressive summit view.
