Man that's a large "hill." You forget until you see it again.

Wow! Thanks for the pictures! A very beautiful mountain.

All it needs now are some lifts and a nice base lodge, and it will be "heaven." :-)

Any hill that can create its own little snowstorm is a real bonified mtn!!Those pics gave me goose bumps.I was staring at stowe in the mid atlantic.The pics were taken just above my prop I'm proud to add,same view.I almost bought a couple of acres just to the right of the top,where it levels off just a little..but the neighbors scared me off with stories of 50 below windchills & 18 foot drifts!Part of the sells pitch was the views of tory mtn.Little did the realters know of the potential of MPC.Those pics have got to stir the blood of even the salamander lovers on this forum.That was not even a good close shot of the top but you could pick out some powder stashes lower down on the mtn.

Andy,

What realtor did you go through to find your CV property?

I just received a note from Jonathan:

All the DCSki hits overwhelmed his site, forcing you to remove the page.

Sorry about that...

Andy is right: the mountain does look like a Mount Mansfield in WV from the angle of those shots. Pretty incredible.

MU I bought my prop from the owner himself.Adam judy jr.He has since passed away,his partner with a last name of Harmen(from Harmen)might still have land left in the area.They owned 125 acres on the ridge above the golden anchor rest.+about 20 acres below it.+ land at various other places.The prop at HIGH MTN up at the top just to the right of MPC in the pic was shown to me by a realter from timberline realty.

Hmm. Well, I never thought that DCSki would have the "Slashdot effect." (The geeks among us on the boards should get that one.)

I sent a message to Jonathan, asking if he will re-post the link. I'm waiting to hear what he says....


"Slashdot Effect

The Slashdot Effect is the sudden, relatively temporary surge in traffic to a Web site that occurs when a high-traffic Web site or other source posts a story that refers visitors to another Web site. The effect gets its name from the Slashdot Web site, which provides content about Linux and related software, and sometimes features news about other related but less-traveled sites. However, the effect can be perceived when any large Web site posts a high-interest, widely-publicized story, about another site. The effect is obviously much more noticeable on smaller sites and the surge in traffic sometimes will slow a site down or make it impossible to reach.
Slashdot, the Web site, is named, according to Slashdot originator Jeff "Hemos" Bates, as "a play on how terrible it is to say domain names out loud." In this case: h-t-t-p-colon-slash-slash-slash-dot-dot-o-r-g"

John,
That's a very nice and informative article about Mt Porte Crayon. Some very beautiful scenery there! There'll be some incredible vistas from the top of the lifts if there is a ski area developed.

Just to avoid confusion:

The web site is run by Jonathan Jessup, a friend of mine who takes photos of the WV Highlands. I did not write the material on that web site.

The pictures give one a good impression of the area.
