Martin brought up a good point in his comment:
“Shouldn’t we respect our heritage and refer to ‘back door’ as Lionel? Does anyone know the history of this name?”
I’d prefer to use Lionel but very few people would know what I’m talking about(and it would be inaccurate in any event).
Lionel was a ski trail which paralelled Hwy #40 but was decommissioned before I ever started skiing.
This guide book by Gillean Daffern was published in 1992. There are a number of trails which are no longer used including the first third of Pocaterra itself.
The Back Door is a convenient access to Upper Pocaterra before Dec 1. We only have two more days to make use of it.
As Martin asks, and I’m wondering, does anyone know the history of the name Lionel?
