The snow patches near Bagley Lakes provided up to 400 vertical feet of skiing/riding. Keep in mind, this is more vertical than some resorts have out in the mid west during the middle of winter!

It sure is, mikerolfs! I validated it on Monday, July 29, for month 261. Still about 180' of vert, and the sunrise corn was a sweet treat to only have to walk 15 minutes from the car for!!!
