Oct 27 2012 Skyline Divide
« on: 10/27/12, 09:41 PM »

set out for Skyline divide hoping to catch the snow level before it shot up. We made it within a mile of the parking lot but stopped there with another car for fear of getting stuck. After skinning up the road to the lot we realized we probably could have made it, oh well. We skinned in the rain until aprox 5,000 ft when it shifted to the frozen stuff. Up top plenty of coverage and dense but soft snow. Low visibility but the trees in that area helped quite a lot. Up top it truly felt like winter.

Took two laps in the bowl, it wasn't blower (it was quite dense), but damn it was fun!

Aside from some fun skiing this trip marked 12 consecutive months of skiing for me, my first TAY! Im not gonna lie, september was terrible, but all of the other months had some fantastic ski days. With every trip I only add more to the list.
