Located immediately above the day lodge, this area is completely lift served. Here, you’ll find gently sloping green runs, cruisers as wide as the Montana sky, the Pentecost Freestyle Terrain Park, and a black diamond or two just for kicks.
Off the Granite Chair, you can step it up a notch (or three) with steep runs groomed to velvety smoothness and mogul fields that test your thighs and nerves. The fall lines and views are utter perfection.
For hardcore steeps, Limelight is it. This north-facing area is true double black with treed slopes, narrow chutes and virtual free-falls that give way to fields of powder. You’ll think you’ve dropped into a Teton Gravity Research film.
