North Side of Rainier - 10.20-21.12
« on: 10/29/12, 06:48 PM »

I guess if I'm getting after it still I should post. Wink  But I'll keep it short.  Skier Dan and I threw down when we heard the storm was a comin.  Camped out through the thick of it.  Rewards came the following morning.  Although that night it snowed sideways, we're guessing we got about a foot of blower on the already existing 4" or so from previous.  Cut some pretty easy (Q1) slabs near 8500', 8-10" that kept us moving conservatively.  None-the-less, we were amped.  Maybe not as active as we once were online, but still throwing down hella where it counts.  20+ miles and blower pow with an overnighter at alpine through a storm on Rainier.  Followed bobcat tracks in and out.  Good way to welcome the season in.  Kyle, we passed on your offerings to Ullr. Wink  I think he was appeased. pics, my camera froze.  You'll have to ask me in person and see them on my cell. :P
