All is not summer in Summerland! Gary and I headed up with full overnite packs on Sat morn. We Pitched tent and left wieghty items at Summerland camp. Snow is now gone from Summerland camp but is only a short carry to don skis or boot up. Above Meany Crest was cloudy and with reports of crevassing on Frying Pan we decided to head for Panhandle Gap. Salvaged the day with some good steep runs and a scramble up peak to west of the gap. Big goat seemed pissed that we wanted the view and kicked some rocks on us as he left. High clouds but Adams and Hood visible.I'm always amazed at how much terrain is there. Skied all the way back to Camp at 8pm for late dinner.Woke up dry but it immediatly turned to rain and then snow with winds. We packed up and left and felt good about one good day given the weather forcast. It won't be long before skiing in this area is over. Goat island Mt is totally devoid of snow on south side and Sunrise looked very dry. Sunrise opens this weekend on 30th.
