I took a closer look at this on Sunday. From what I could see, Master
Magician must have started at the true ridgeline. There is a flat series
of trails that go off in that direction from the summit lift, and there
is a radio tower up there. Also, just above where Wizard hairpins an
apparent ex-glade comes down from above those cliffs (which I believe
were all blasted to make Wizard) and across the middle of the hairpin..
The top actually still looks skiable and has a wide chute down the
middle. If wizard wasnt there it would be a very long and steep pitch..
too bad.
