Basin Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Like Mount Tom only 3 air miles to the north, Basin Mountain is one of the premier ski descents in the area. The peaks are similar in a number of ways: both have striking couloirs plainly visible from Highway 395; both couloirs face northeast, ensuring superior snow conditions late into the ski season; and both are popular, being two of the longer descents in the Sierra Nevada with excellent skiing."
