4/17/2010 cutthroat pass
« on: 04/19/10, 01:05 PM »

We did the through tour from porcupine creek to cutthroat lake via cutthroat pass. Skinning was pretty good and we encountered some rain down below and some snow at the pass. Skiing was epic. Epic in the sense it was epically terrible. The snow was very slow as we were able to point the skis straight down hill and not gain any real speed. This caused for slow going at the valley floor getting out. All in all still was a good say with great company.

As a side note: snow pack as we all know isn't that great. Already seeing some bare patches at swamp creek (~4000ft).
