Comments: The Up-Hill "Go Card" purchase was not able to be done a head of time, unless you knew everyone's birthday in your group. Plus the website of trails being allowed to climb was not correct. So plan your start accordingly, as you need to purchase pass at Guest Services window (cost $10), which doesn't open until 8a, and you need to be back before lifts close at 4p. We then moved cars to West Mtn. Lot, and when heading to lot, at the intersection, go to the right. You can also park 400' higher at the Golf Course, but on private property.

From West Mtn Lot take West Mtn. slope (1275') past Bull Winkle Bar and Grill, and then Timberline slope to summit

We had also a younger group with us, that broke trail a head of us, and two in the group also continued to Abraham, so trail at this point is nicely broken out
