Feb 8-10, 2013 ONP pow skiing & "The Hourglass"
« on: 02/12/13, 12:28 PM »

Fun weekend in the Olympics − pow skiing on Friday with a couple out of town guests, "hot pow" Saturday with a visiting guide, and recon on Sunday of "The Hourglass" on Mt. Angeles. Super cool line, wasn't quite in but still fun to check out. Comes off the east face of a minor sub peak in the south ridge of the west summit (say that 10 times fast).

Trip report on that mission here.

Wow!

No wonder I didn't run into you out there. You don't have to wait for the crowds to fade to run that line!

Nice work!

Ha!  I loved your 11:30 am alpine start. 

Also, thanks for reporting in detail on these lines.  I'd really like to ski them this spring when they are in!

Looks like a great line. Is "An alternate entrance on the looker’s left side can be accessed from the top of the Pipeline and is a little mellower. "  top left of the big snowfield, the small visible snow section? So does the pipeline then make a sharp looker's right up behind the rock and start at this alternate entrance to "the hourglass"?
That is you are at the top of the pipeline / hourglass alternate entrance and skier's right is pipeline, skiers left is alternate entrance to hourglass?

Thanks!

Thanks guys!

ski2fly: You are correct, there's a gully that takes you right to the top of the Pipeline from the backside and from there you can bump over to that lookers left entrance.
