September 29, Mt. Baker Coleman Demming
« on: 09/29/11, 07:44 PM »

Yesterday I skied the Coleman Demming route on Mt. Baker. The suncups had been repaved with a smooth layer of cold, packed powder. The Roman wall was, as usual in winter (!), rimy and rough; below that, the skiing became excellent and remained so all the way down to the edge of the ice at 6,000'. A few more details can be found at my website: www.forestmcbrian.com --it could still be good for a few days!

Pretty similar on the 28th on the Squak Glacier. Some sections were purely a thick raincrust due to the wind.

Nice stuff Forest. Looks a lot different than it was just last weekend.

Mtraslin, Baker can be awesome in October! I hope it clears up in the next week or two.
