Mercury is an open run located in the wide open spaces between Telestar, Apollo, North Chutes, Fail Safe Trees, and Perfect Bowl.

Mercury is a low angle slope and very wind exposed. Snow quality tends to be variable (wind crust and light sastrugi), and bits of exposed tundra can pop through the snow on occasion. On the right day, it can be great fun (3 to 6 inches of powder - any more and you won't be able to maintain speed), but on other days, it's just a way to get to other runs.

The top of Chairlift 4, where Mercury begins, can be very windy, and feel much, much colder than the bottom of Chairlift Four. Bundle up!
