Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, San Jose, California.
This climb takes us up Rte 150 along a narrow canyon to a ski resort in the mountains. It's a fairly steady climb, with lots of pine trees and a creek flowing alongside us. Since we are in a canyon there aren't any scenic views but the natural scenery of the forest and the mountains is still quite nice.
The road is in good condition, but the shoulder isn't too reliable, sometimes there is a decent shoulder and sometimes there isn't. In the summer months the traffic is light, since there isn't much activity in the Ski Village so we felt safe on the ride. During the winter months there would probably be significantly more traffic.
