Best backcountry skiing

I've skiied pretty much everything in Brian Litz, Lankford and Lou Dawson's books and am looking for new places to take my teles and skins. I've heard of 3000 ft. vertical runs up around Henderson Mine, but never found them. Anyone willing to share a few Backcountry gems with me? I've been returning regularly to Butler Gulch, Current Creek, and Coral Creek. Lots of fun there, but I'm looking for a place with longer runs. I will keep it a secret.....I promise!!@##$@!

Sorry Dude, but there's no way I'm showing you my top-secret powder stash that's 20 minutes from Golden, has highway access half way up, no avy danger, and only takes 15 minutes to boot-pack to the summit for a 3000' descent off the backside in steep and deep glades with untracked pow pow down to a place where you can hitch rides back up with Swedish Bikini Team members that are constantly driving through and who are really turned on by hunky backcountry skiiers.

I just love it when they ask, in that Swedish accent, "Can I see your beeper?"

Seriously though, if you really think there's a 3000' descent near the Henderson Mine, get a topo map or check it out with Google Earth.

You should check out the stuff on fremont pass. Clifton reservior (little bartlett) is awesome. Easy skin and great ski. Mosquito pass is also another great jem.
