Dec 3, 2011 Tatoosh
« on: 12/03/11, 09:27 PM »

Dave ,James ,Ken and myself.
Only speaking for myself here but I'm spoiled. We booted up Narada  and then skinned up to Castle saddle in quick time. Pole probing along the way was promising but actual turns were another story. the scenerio went something like- first turn windblown then powder then breakable crust . Really a mixed bag and hard to get a handle on it for this skier.
Castle bowl was wind blown so We skied down south from saddle first 300 ft were good then heavy so we traversed to old reliable Sunbeam north facing drainage, More of the same mixed bag!
Overall it was a good tour without excellent skiing.

Scenery was as expected A+ Grin

Nice Robie.  We looked longingly at the Tatoosh on Friday, wondering if there was powder there. 

Freebird - great pictures!  Looks like you guys really used the whole day.  Nice moon shot - mine never turn out.

Best luck I've had with a moon shot, but I'm just using a point n shoot.

Here is some video from the day

Nice work on the video. You made us look good considering that the conditions were not exactly ripper.
