Did you know that an Eaglecrest day or season pass allows you one free ride up the Hooter Chair for easy access to the Upper Loop? Eaglecrest does require a ski retention strap to board the chair. This can be a very simple device (I use a thin cord attaching my boot to my binding. Access generally used from the top of Hooter is to ski straight from the chair and down the snow road towards the Black Bear chair runs. Probably a bit fast on this road if you’re a beginner. Then it’s a few turns down to the Upper Loop. Enjoy! Fred
