|Magic has some steeps off the top - plus some rock-launching opportunities|
|Pomerelle has a new trip chair called E-Z Rider that accesses|
Milk run, an immaculately groomed, perfect slope for people
learning how to ski or ride.
|Pomerelle has a down-home friendly uncrowded atmosphere ... and good food!|
|Beginner hill at Pomerelle with magic carpet. Magic Mountain has a beginner |
hill and a magic carpet as well, but a shorter hill.
|Two lifts service most of Pomerelle's skiable terrain, plus the magic carpet|
for the beginner hill.
|We did a 4-mile xc ski loop on classic gear|
on nice groomed trails at Magic in the late afternoon.

The xc trailhead is next to the chairlift. Very convenient.
One other tip: If you have backcountry gear, there are several great hike-to slopes immediately adjacent to Magic and Pomerelle that would provide excellent untouched powder runs. Carry climbing skins, an avalanche beacon, probe poles and a shovel, and go for it. I highly recommend it for backcountry devotees.
