Powderhouse Gulch is a great trail for several shuttle laps. It takes about 15-20 minutes/lap to drop 2000' in almost 3 miles.

Expect smooth single track, off camber chunk and some exposed steepness.

Traction varies with trail dryness.

The Ridge Road is groomed for snowmobiles. Don't expect virgin corduroy, but it is usually firm enough to ride. Ridge Road south from Wms Summit sometimes is rough from the FAA maintenance cat that visits Lake Mtn.
