A little bit of white and a little bit of red makes pink. Anyone who remembers their preschool lessons knows this simple fact, so it is that Pink Pine Ridge is a moniker given to the spine that separates the White Pine and Red Pine drainages. It’s an excellent, quick tour for those skiers and snowboarders who are short on time. One run can be done car-to-car in fewer than three hours, maybe two if you’re a spandex-clad rando dude. Pink Pine is also a relatively safe place to ski, as low-angle shots spill from the east-northeast slopes with a snowpack anchored by aspen and evergreen trees.
