After a 10-20 minute hike up to the top of Mirkwood, most approach the bowl and peer over the drop. This open face has the most direct wind loading and consistent soft snow providing an open palette in which to carve your masterpiece. Always a solid choice. For those who enjoy tight trees and chutes, Mirkwood Ridge presents some incredible lines. This north facing terrain offers quality snow and moments of Zen. The skiing/riding in Mirkwood Basin has been phenomenal over the last week and only looks to get better.
