How to Ski Any Mountain Like a Local: Rise Above

Brown's rules of chairlift selection: 1) "If it's dumping, take the fastest route to the top." 2) Immediately after a storm, everyone will flock to the most powerful lift. Don't. "I was once at Fernie on a nice day, and everyone was riding the quad. I rode a triple off to the side, which only about 60 people were skiing." 3) The worse the conditions, the better off you are shunning what Brown calls the "macho, charismatic lifts." "A few years ago on a windy day at Whistler, I skied a T-bar all day because that's where all the windblown snow was going," he says. "When conditions are bad, people who would normally be on the beginner lifts are in retail therapy or at the bar."
