Ohhhhh, yeaahhhh
Who'd ever thought you could ski the Summit at Snoqualmie in July! Cool Not Alpental but West.  Good thing for really short skis (180cm)  squeezed in 6 times on the PATCH managing 10-15 turns each run.  Tomorrow I'll head back to Rainier or perhaps Adams and Hood for some real skiing. Grin

In 2002, I did a traverse from the Summit to the Cle Elum River starting on June 1 and started skiing right at the paved road. I bet you could have skied Summit West in July that year. (The snowpack was well above 100% of normal at Snoqualmie.)

The only patch I remember at the Summit last weekend was a pile left over from the terrain park. Whatever floats your boat!  Wink

I heard that was a banner year for snowfall.  Too bad I was stuck in North Carolina that year. Angry  After missing two years of skiing due to living in NC, I'm willing to ski anything no matter how short or even silly it might seem to others.btw There is skiing in NC, I was busy with college to even bother.  Summit West is far better than anything overthere.   Grin
