Reids Peak is practically Bald Mountain’s twin, as the two proudly stand side by side above the Mirror Lake Highway. But even though Reids shares the same easy access from the road, it’s a bit steeper, rockier, and more intimidating. If you have a snowmobile and can get to Mirror Lake in the winter, there are a couple of skiable shots off the summit. But spring is not kind to Reids Peak as her boulder-strewn crown melts off quickly, and skiing from the top is nearly impossible. However, when the road is finally plowed, there are usually a few snow-filled lines that stubbornly remain, just waiting for your skis or snowboard. These lines are the ones described here.
