April 13, 2012 - Sauk Mt - North Cascades
« on: 04/13/12, 05:10 PM »



Headed up to Sauk today. Snow on the road got deep really quickly.. was a 2" rain crust on top of frozen slurry. Parked here and continued on ski. There were some really sketch spots to drive further up anyway.




Looking out where Iron Mt is


Sauk

We were going to head for the peak but decided to bag it from the poor snow condition. We skied down from here. There was about 2" of sun soft on top of a rain crust on top of slurry. Not the good for anything technical


Looking up from were we came












Nice day to get out and get a few turns in

What elevation did you park at?

Looks like you turned around where I did this season.  Thanks for the report.

Cheers.
