Porter Fork offers moderate, wind-protected skiing in mostly wooded terrain. A long, safe, quiet skin past cabins and through the woods brings you to a wide variety of north- and east-facing runs. The home run, West Porter Fork, is a classic slide-path falling directly to the approach trail, just south of the highest cabins.
