May 28, 2005, Muir Snowfield, Nisqually chute
« on: 05/29/05, 05:35 AM »

Not much to say, other than the snow was pretty soft and grabby and variable on the upper Muir snowfield.  We came down around 3pm.
Hoping for better snow on steeper aspects, we entered the Nisqually chute, and found just that.  This also gets you a 4000ft run w/o having to take your skis off, unlike Pan point, which is pretty melted out.

We were able to board within a few hundred feet of the parking lot (taking our boards off a few times) by heading down the valley that leads to the visitor center.
