Ascent Trip ReportA walk up a ski run ..... 1.2 miles, 40 minutes RT
From I80, exit 284, we drove south on Hwy 115 for 2 miles to a right turn on Hwy 903, 1.8 miles to a right turn on unsigned Lake Road (sign points to Lake Harmony), .8 miles to a left on Big Boulder Drive, 1.12 miles to Big Boulder Ski Resort parking area. This was my TH.
I walked up the main ski run to the top, then the service road to the summit area, capped with 4 Communication Tower, at about .75 miles from the TH.
The HP is the huge pile of large rocks to the right-of the service road, 30 yards before arriving at the furthest west Tower.
My GPS 41.04369,-75.60517, a BM is embedded in a lower rock "County of Carbon Survey Monument, 1991 Station, 13-04".
