July 16th and 17th taking it easy on the American River at one of our favorite campsites just 10 minutes down the Eastern slopes from Chinook Pass, WA. This was my first visit to this zone so late in the season and was pleasantly surprised to find our low route around Naches Peak(to the SE side from the Pacific Crest Trail foot bridge over Hwy 410). One reason I like this tour is being able to click in and get a few turns to start the tour moments after shutting the car door. Once around Naches we just did laps off the Ridge on soft sun cups that were great for carving. Finished up w/ an easy out the same way we came in, then the 10 minute drive back to camp and did a repeat the next day. Great weather!

Some pics of what the snow is looking like as of yesterday the 17th of July - http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=10445&id=100001015888022
