Burn scar area in Payson Canyon just below Pete Winward area and above what has been known locally for years as the "Ski Hill" because back in the 40's a rope tow existed in the flatter area below. We would have never been able to ski this area before the fire, but it now sticks out in such contrast, and is just off the main canyon road.
I really don't expect you to post this ob, it is just an FYI, would not want to diminish how hazardous things are around us, I know a lot of burn scar areas are being skied on Loafer Mountain, and other areas in Payson canyon etc. Just an example of how to select your tour based on new snow amounts, elevation and all the other factors. Thanks so much for getting great information out there
