I'm just around the point of the mountain. I would be a good resource for help in the darkroom. I teach at my darkroom and up in Park City.
There are several of us here on APUG, Im sure we will come out of the wood work soon.
Graded red would be interesting. I would offer greater contrast in the sky but not on the ground. It may work for some images. I would at least give it a try.
You can get a GND for like $20 at Pictureline if you need one.
Let me know how I can help.
