Paradise to Crystal Traverse Feb 4th - 6th
« on: 03/21/12, 05:41 PM »

During the brief high pressure system in early February Jason Hummel and I did a 3 day traverse starting at Paradise and ending at Crystal.

Here is a TR I wrote on my website and here is a TR Jason wrote on his site.

Sorry it took so long and let me know if you want the specific route!

Thanks all, especially Kyle who forced me to get out on this excursion. It was a great adventure. Out of the traverses I've done, there are a few that are great in winter. This is one of them. It is up there with the finest high routes I've done. There was just gobs of skiing and cool mountain vistas. You can't beat getting a run on the Forest Queen Chair for kicks to end the trip with a few more turns at Crystal Mountain!

Joedabaker if you are interested in a print...what looks awesome and is ready to hang are canvas prints. They come in many different forms. Just google canvas wraps or prints in google images to see what they look like and write me an e-mail if you are interested.
