Title: June 13, 2015 Tatoosh Range
Post by: telemack on 06/15/15, 06:14 AM
Rusty Knees set up a trip that brought a conga-line of skiers up to the Pinnacle Glacier.  There was 290' of vertical but it was coverage typical of August.  It's impressive/sad how much meltout there has been in a month; on May 11 the Paradise Valley Road was covered and I skinned Mazama back bowl; all that is gone now. 
The MORA webcam of the Tatoosh shows the Pinnacle remnant well; the tarn is mostly frozen but not much snow around it.  The narrow section offered up rocks and one core shot.  I had a binding breakage on my first (only) run, but several folks had multiple laps. 
Paradise Glacier looks good if you hike to it.....
Response to replies below:  Plenty of wildflowers. Noticed 8-10 varieties along the maintained trail.

Any wildflowers? We usually go for the flowers in early August, but the way this year is going...sheesh.

Wildflowers are popping big-time at Paradise right now. I'd get out there!

Mack,
Glad you got some. Bummed I couldn't make it.
BTW, was that another NTN breakage?
