I know that you can't camp in the inner basin, but it looks like from the picture in ricos TR, that you can actually gain access to the cabin's near the spring water? I always thought they were locked. Hantavirus hotel...?

It is weird. Seasons are highly variable, and can be Jan to Mar, or Oct - July, depending on annual and decadal gyrations of the eastern Pacific. I've ridden 2000' in July looking out at 100 deg red desert. It's ground zero for subtropical jet flows. Flag actually has a deep snowboard history and since the early 80s has had a core group of riders. It produced several early national champs, Transworld's senior editor for many years, Steward (corporate mastermind), and the brothers Brandon based from here for a while in high school, etc.

Scenes from a mid-country session with Zude and Splitchimp. South face: nada. North face: 13" atop popcorn cinders; nary a nick, sessioning for weeks.

taylor whats the access to the cinder hills like in the winter? I have always looked at them on my way up the 89A in the winter wondering how it would be, looks rad!! I definitely wanna go check it out. I have a subie, so can you just drive as far as the snow lets ya?

peace

Grab a map of the cinders theirs lots to be explored. You can access a lot through the ohv road from 89 (right turn after sunset blvd) or go through Sunset Crater Monument with your gold boy pass. Pm me if your heading this way, i live out hear and get back there often.

Happy New Year (think snow)
