1/14/10 nason ridge(5574). powtatoes.
« on: 01/14/10, 06:58 PM »

Hey CBSP,,, you can ride the avi chutes back to camp MTR from here!!!

Toured up to nason ridge today with my dog. Took the usuall route to rainy pass, then headed up the ridge to the first of nason's unnamed high points, 5574. We rode down due north until interesecting with smithbrook more then 1000 feet later. You could ride it out for another 500' or so, but my dog was starting to lag. Terrain here was like being at yodelin. Nothing to exiciting.

Skinned a very short distance back to rainy pass, dropped into the trees almost as soon as I passed back over. got some good, but slightly heavy pow turns, and many small pillow drops back to the switchbacks.

Snow was between 4-10"s and dryer as I went higher. all was fun to ride.  Some resembled powder. SKinning was super easy,and turns where fun. Ride out on the road was stickier then on the way in.... I went ski mode and had to kick & for 2 milehe
5574, inspiring, eh?!?!

I'll be there bud. Last years injuries prevented me from doing the avi field trip, so I only have MTR 1. This tour was part business trip. I was meeting a surveyor up there to plot out where to put the foundation for my snow fortress.

Sweet!  Building the snow fortress is the best part about MTR.

I was wondering how Saturday went. I would have joined you all if I had known about the plan switch. Sounds like I didn't miss out.

Well, it all turned to heavy today. I tried to race the freezing levels up lichtenburg, but I am too slow, and I slept too late. It wet snowed on me until about 4,500', and then it turned to rain. So, I turned around. It was not very fun on the way down, even with one big water ski.

raining at yodelin on the way past. Looked better at the pass level, but still wet.


yes, JimG... I'll give you a call later this eve.

And you are all invited to my fortress warming. Wink
