Tunnel Face is a short, steep ski run between East Ropes and West Ropes . It is very, very south facing (the steepness makes it face more directly into the sun), so it's best skied before the powder gets too heavy. However, it's an amazing, if short, run during the right conditions. Steep! And, few people other than regulars even know about it. The steep pitch and strange run-out tend to scare off all but expert skiers, so it's generally infrequently skied. The run out takes you on a flat traverse along I-70 to the foot path tunnel under the highway, that's primarily used by skiers using The Face to return to the base lodge area from the Chair Eight valley.

Tunnel Face shouldn't be confused with The Face. The Face is an advanced ski trail that runs from the bottom of Chairlift Eight to the Base Lodge, and is considerably to the east of Tunnel Face. The Face is much easier than Tunnel Face.

Skiers! Disappointed the season is over? Why not let your eyes drift back to May 2014, when there was plenty of snow and great skiing? Hopefully, Summer will have great skiing also!

Jimmy Page Addresses "Stairway to Heaven" Lawsuit: "This is Ridiculous" - Radio.com

It is ridiculous! Karl Kelman coauthored Stairway to Heaven with Robert Fripp in 1969. Bob came by the house, I remember it well, he got in a big argument with my dad about a croquet game we were all playing and then we figured out the tune and the lyrics on a xylophone my brother got for Christmas. End of Story.
