Here is a view from Southbound looking back on the mountain. In the center of the photo you can see a portion of the recently thinned tree stand between the top of Little Mo and Ramble On. This zone had the dead standing trees removed this summer and is much more open now. This area includes nicknamed zones such as Dill’s Thrill and Surprise Chute. It has a nice steep pitch and a NE aspect that holds the soft snow during the winter months.

During the ski season, we do maintain a rope line along the skier’s left side of Little Mo. This is so that ski patrol has the ability to easily close off Ramble On when our Cat Skiing snowcats are coming up or down this trail during operating hours. We are looking to improve the gated access into this area this winter so that it is easier to enjoy this newly gladed zone from upper Little Mo.
