dec 21, 2012, Windy Knob, Blewett Pass
« on: 12/26/12, 05:46 PM »

Got done constructing fish habitat a bit early so I was able to squeak in a solo afternoon tour at Blewett.

Headed up the peak east of diamond head that i'm calling diamond not, until someone corrects me Smiley   From the top it appeared higher than Diamond Head, but who knows.  The top 1200' of skiing were very nice, with a windbuffed 3-4" reactive slab.  The underlying wind crust was not breakable up high (5500' +), but wasn't very strong down lower making for nice turns.

corrected to windy knob, thanks smitty!
