Awesome story, sounds like a blast. I've looked down toward Alpine Meadows road from the top of KT and it looks like it would take about 5 minutes to get down there. Unfortunately I won't be able to find out legally, as there will not be on snow access between the mountains, only be shuttle. I wish they could secure the permits to finish the lift. For heck sake, they already have the lift towers up!
