May 25, 2012, Mt Pilchuck
« on: 05/25/12, 09:47 PM »

Road is drivable within 1/4 mile of the trailhead, continuous skiing to the summit.  We found about 8" slush on a soft base, no grabbiness.  The lookout was a handy refuge from a hail and thunderstorm mid afternoon for most of us, while others schralped steep short lines near the summit.  Once cleared, the Gunsight skied smooth.  Fun day making new friends thanks to TAY.

The human lightening rod aspect was a little unnerving for those few brief moments....

Wow, a TAY/TGR collaboration - rare animal indeed! Too bad I was chained to the computer.

Great party and the perfect place to enjoy a thunderstorm! Thanks to Jeff for the BBQ and Brauts, and to everyone for helping me get some good shots. My TR at NWH.
