July 22, 2012, Castle/Pinnacle saddle
« on: 07/22/12, 11:16 PM »

Skied Paradise Glacier yesterday and spent the night with friends in Longmire. We were planning on heading home around noon and found ourselves flipping a coin at the Pinnacle Saddle trail around 12:30. It was misty, but looked like it would clear, we had all our stuff, and we "were here". 1 nature valley bar to split and 11 cherries left over from yesterday. Headed up and had some great turns. Patchy snow at trailhead and skiable snow 6-700ft from saddle. There is still alot of snow in the upper bowls.

Here's a view from Faraway Rock, across Reflection Lake, on Sat 7/21.
Any predictions on melt pond development?
