That was 28 may. Do they now have any grass on white lightning ? It was closed and closed and looked pretty rough on my one weekend in Feb. Lower was just barely open. I was told it took a lot of damage from the chair installs. They need to get that going again. I don't see any expansion going on, but Sugar does have the new beginner quad this year. If Beech had not built that little cluster of houses at the base of 6, that ridge would have made a nice set of short steep slopes.

This is a rookie question from someone who was been to Beech more than I care to admit. I have seen the cleared area off of "Oz Road" to the right of 6 before but it looks a little more cleared now. Anybody tried to get it? Looks like it could tie in to Lower WL depending on the topography there at the end. Marked "Old slope trail" on google earth.

I've tried it during a big snowstorm before. It's not steep at all. Almost flat in spots.
WOOOOOO!
