July 31, 2010 – Watching the sun come up in the Artist Point parking lot and burn the morning fog layer off giving us epic views of Mt. Baker and Shuksan and getting us pumped for the big day heading out towards Lasiocarpa Ridge for a ski down the backside towards the Sholes Glacier.

Warm enough first thing to start out w/ the shirt off (wouldn’t last for long) and working up a good sweat as we made our way on the Ptarmigan Ridge trail behind Table mountain. When we were out just below Ptarmigan Ridge w/ skied into the Valley below (Wells Creek) for a direct route up on the Ridge between Coleman Pinnacle and Lasiocarpa Ridge. As we started skinning for the ridge, the rain started and temps dropped so out came the Winter jacket AGAIN for a Summer tour to make things pleasant for the rest of the day. Took a quick lunch and did a short ski on the backside (West face) towards Sholes Glacier. Then finished off w/ the nice steep ski back down towards Wells Creek. A few skins on/skins off we were back at the Chain lakes junction were we decided NOT to walk the trail behind Table but to ski down and boot up the last remaining chute just before the parking lot.

We were intending on spending one more night up there but the rain wasn’t looking like it was going away any time soon. Made it back to Snoqualmie pass by 10PM w/ the rain still falling… Good choice.
