Anyone been and have any insight? I've gotten a bunch of info from the TGR forums and a few firsthand accounts from friends but the more info I can get the better.
I lived out there for 3 years and know it well.
Unless you have avy knowledge and gear, stay in bounds please. You'll see lots of people going through the gates, but they're all experienced with training and gear. The back country is very dangerous out there, lots of terrain traps where you can be buried in over 40 feet of snow. It's happened to more than a few people out there. Lots of huge cliffs to get stuck on as well.
Aside from that, have fun. Gunners bowl is a blast if it's open. Again. Very dangerous if it's closed though, it's a huge trap. Riding chair one is fun, but there are a lot of cliffs, so keep your eyes up.
