BW has never been and never will be a great ski mountain due to the limited topography, but once upon a time it was a really, really cool spot IMHO. I remember, as if it was yesterday, a sublime moment maybe 15 years ago when my wife and drove up and parked right on the slope. Then as we were walking back to the truck after a great afternoon of NO people skiing, these huge flakes started coming down in slow mo. It was twilight and when we got to the car there were NO cars in the lot. Now, they are building giant condos all over that hill, asll in the name of 'progress' ... :(
