January 17, 2009, Mount Townsend - No Snow ...
« on: 01/18/09, 11:01 AM »

You can get within 1.5 miles of the TH (SErly, upper TH) but that is the crux, as there is no snow on this mountain.  Thanks for driving Ty - the AWD AstroVan rules.

We got to the summit, and views stretched from St. Helen's to BC Coast Range, but there was NO SNOW to be had.  Well, except a more Northerly facing bowl that looked frozen and would have been a slide for life.  And it would take you down the wrong side of the mountain. 

Townsend will need a lot of snow to be skiable in the spring as there was nothing on it.  Well, patchy at best but unskiable. Huh

Someone needs to grab the jetstream by the tail and give it a good shake.

Cold cuts anyone?
