July 24, 2010 On the day the bridge opened for the Skyline TH just out of Glacier, WA thought it could be a nice ridge walk w/ a possible ski. To make this trip more of a workout, train for hanging w/ the Traslin Bros, and most of all get a friend to come w/ I acted as a Sherpa packing boots & skis x 2 pair for a six mile in to finally get a small patch to play on off of Peak 6563′. We were shooting for Chowder Ridge, but ran out of gas right above the last pass. The skiing was much better at the 6,000 + level(than the day prior off Table) w/ the sun cups small enough to open it up for some good Summer Cascade Carving.

This ridge walk is now one of my all time favorites w/ skis or w/out. Just remember if you do it w/out snow bring lots of water for it is a DRY hike.
