What some call the "Kettle" is really the "Cut"

When Borderline Ski Club took over the Ski Area Operation in 87?, we all paid double the normal amount for a season pass to raise the money to replace the haul rope on the Baldy Tee. We did not have the resources to operate the McKinney. It was a challenge teaching beginners from Tower 3 down, and the lift lines would back up. When Borderline was ready to re-open the McKinney Tee, there was a work party to cut the trees that had grown up on those slopes. Jerry Forney's crew left a gladed area skiers left at the top of the Kettle for the kids, and the Kettle run itself was never totally re-opened. Back in the day, the bottom of Kettle was a little slow and you really had to tuck to get back to the lift.
