I wanted to see how hard it really was to get over to Burnt Ridge Mountain. I did the now well-known routine: Twister to Twister Glade to Echo and Gully, then bomb it.
I counted my skating strokes. Twenty to get over the first rise and 20 to get over the second. I think I had 5 double polls too. I put another 20 skates in on the way down to the chair…but it wasn’t mandatory. 40 skate strokes and I was there.
And it turns out coming back is really easy. Hedges, into the trees and up the North. No skating at all if you find the right spot.
