“There are the trademark Valhalla pencil couloirs, chutes, spines, and open bowls rolling downward into rising forests that are so roomy they seem almost cultivated. Then there’s the Cat’s Meow — a section of super-deep tree chutes weaving in and out of glades straddling a shallow natural half pipe. It’s 3,000 vertical feet of serious disbelief…”
