what is the backcountry tour near empire?

Anyone know about a backcountry ski trail/tour/etc. that originates near Empire? I heard that you drive off toward Henderson but turn left at the first mine entrance, not up toward Jones and Butler. Any info????

That woud be Woods Creek and you drive back a bit past the tailing ponds and start your tour. Been back there a couple of times but didn't find all that much good turning terrain up close. Some serious avalanche danger back there so watch out. You can go further in and find some more open terrain but I haven't ever gone back that far. You can ski from the top of Butler down into the Woods Creek drainage and if the snow is good and fresh it's a pretty good run. It faces south so you have to get it before it cooks.

Like it or not, all of us are the result of a sexual act.

marcy, curious if you're eliza schwindt's friend? If so, I talked on the phone with you last year but we never hooked up to ski. I'm a friend of hers from montana still looking to get to know the backcountry around here.
