Wildsnow Field HQ sits on a mining claim from the 1800s. We think the claim was probably a “fake” deal designed to extract money from clueless investors — no gold or silver here that would ever be worth mining, just a bunch of crumbly slate that would turn to gravel as soon as you tried to cut it. Whatever the case, it’s private land now. Skin out, ski in. Spring boot-top powder is when we like it best. Mining? We go for the white stuff instead of the golden.
