Approached Goat Mountain from the Twin Lakes Road (rd 3065)

We drove up the Twin Lakes road to about 3000ft. Skied up the road for about 1 mile and took the old logging road (Rd 3066 on Green Trails map) that branches off to the right and heads up the west side of Goat Mountain. There is no bridge across Swamp Cr but there is a big log just upstream that we crossed on. Rd 3066 switchbacks up through an old cut block. The cut block is thick second growth so stay on the road. The road has some alder in places but is easy to ski up. We followed the road for 3 switchbacks. From the end of the 3rd switchback we angled southeast through the top portion of the cut block which is pretty open and gained old growth forest at about 4000ft. Travel in the old growth was very open and pleasant. We climbed gradually around to the southeast into the basin just west of the trail and skied up open slopes to the summit. There were some tracks from earlier in the day (see other post for Goat Mountain).

From the summit we skied down the north gully of Goat. This is a great 2500ft run and was still a good ski in the spring snow. At the bottom of the run we picked up the Twin Lakes road and skied back to our car. Overall a fun way to ski up Goat.
