I had always wondered what was on the other side of Stratton. I practically grew up skiing there… most every weekend in the winter for several years..
I knew that the Sun Bowl wasn’t completely on the opposite side of the mountain… but what was? Would Stratton ever expand out that way? Well, this picture says, “nope”.
You can just make out that the mountain doesn’t strictly have a back side. It doesn’t decend for 1/2 a mile, and then into the town of Stratton…. (original image)
