VIDEO: It’s the start of another snowstorm in Summit County and there are plenty of fresh turns to be had — if you’re willing to put in the work. Z Griff and family make the hike from Imperial Chair to the summit of Peak 8 for one of the best high-alpine runs on the mountain: Snow White, found on the far northern ridge between Peak 8 and Peak 7. Oh yes, it was worth it.

Fast forward to 2:11 for the beginning of the traverse and the drop into fairyland.
