The hills were calling.  My dad and I hadn't gotten out together in a while so we decided the big game could be missed in favor of colorado cascade cold smoke.  Almost went for Hurricane Ridge, but the sniffles and not feeling 100% led us to a closer favorite.

Skinned up from the south in a mixed bag of crusts.  The rain crust is 2-4cm thick and generally supportive to skis, but easy to break through with boots and most pole plants got through.  The surface was wildly varied by aspect.  South side had a bad sun crust.  Wind had scoured the light soft surface off the Western aspects.   Hmmm, how about NE?  Dollar Bills (are we still saying that?)   Dropped off the S summit towards the lake, 12" of light fresh snow that was a little too light for me, can we get some rain?   Wink    must be the new setup i'm not used to.  Roll Eyes

Skinned back up to the south summit and dropped E then south back to the highway.  Great day out with dad, saw 3 other groups enjoying the stable conditions.  Glacier Peak views from the summit were amazing! (sorry no camera)


chill people, skiing is fun
