The "proper" summit of The Big Mountain.

Type: In Bounds (completely inside ski area boundary)

Description

From the Summit House, make your way down the easy cat road heading into Hellroaring Basin. From there, exit right, click out, and make the short walk to the proper summit.

The closeness of this area to the Summit House makes for a pretty easy Summit Cheeseburger.

The view from the proper summit of the Big Mountain is enhanced when enjoyed alongside a fresh cheeseburger from the Summit House.
