Sunday I hiked the sherwins with a friend. If you are down there, the conditions are right and you have a local to show you around I highly recommend this. I haven't looked at topozone but my guess is that it's 1500 - 2000 feet of nice vert with a bunch of different options to get down. It's a pretty easy boot pack up, some of it through dirt and boulder fields. I took my splitboard but didn't actually split it until we hit the flat section at the bottom.


A view from the top:

and the line we took:

It was knee deep powder almost the entire way down and the line we took was completely untracked until that bottom section you can see in the pic. the wind was really scary up on top of that ridge. It's the first time I've ever had to stop and lay down on the ground for fear of getting blown away.

Arent the Sherwins great? If you get tired of the resort crowd at lunch, you can get in the car drive through town and be in the woods quick. Nice TR

Yeah, Sherwins are definitely cool.

I was really trying to push my buddy to do something a little more "remote" and out of town but I was really psyched on the terrain we were able to access from up on that ridge.

Thanks again BCD for the insider info.
