January 13-16, Tam McArthur Rim, Sisters, Oregon
« on: 01/22/12, 01:51 PM »

Arrived at the backcountry yurts on Friday morning, and managed to get in one good icy run before sundown.

Saturday we toured to the top of the rim, and went cross country, making it nearly to Broken Top.

Saturday night the snow started falling around 7pm... and continued all through the night.

Sunday morning, we had 4 inches of new at the yurts and nearly a foot at the top of the rim.

Spent the day making 4 laps to the top of the Proboscis and skiing the near perfect powder.

Monday morning, took the sleds back to the sno-park.

Mapped GPS data...

The green line shows the track my buddy and I took towards Broken Top before encountering the 'Ice Dome' (the blue pin)... and the blue polygon shows some good bowls to the north of the Broken Top ridge line that would make a nice destination for future outings.

Great to see a TR from The Three Sister Backcoutry Yurt.  You're lucky that you got out of the area before the storm cycle arrived.  You could have been trapped there with all that fresh powder.  Wink

We got some good coverage on Sunday morning... and heard all that new snow (on top of ice) warmed up and turned to slide fodder after we left.
