Sept. 8th, Paradise Glacier
« on: 09/10/12, 11:59 AM »

Headed up to Paradise Glacier to get in Sept. turns and my first TAY.  Snow is not as smooth as two weeks ago but in pretty good shape and still dirty.  Two carries are now required to get to the eastern edge of the Glacier.  Heli was around all day, we saw it land 5 times where the lost parties from Jan. where found(8200 feet).  We where the only snowboarders/skiers on the Glacier, which surprised us with how nice the weather was.  Looking forward to fresh snow in the future months.  Trying to post pics, but I cant get the file size small enough.   Work on it later tonight.

Skied Paradise on Sat (15th).  Started at 9,000 due to no snow on edge of Anvil Rock.  Suncups minimal close to rocks.  At 8,500 crevasses started opening up with quite a few "glide tracks" showing up in many different directions- be careful.  Had to do a few carries after last steep section before Edith.  Not bad for Sept turns, but would be nice to see snow soon and longer run.  Total vertical descent around 3,000ft.
