March 4, 2013 Holy Diver, Roosevelt
« on: 03/10/13, 08:20 PM »

Sunny day Monday, don't need a second invitation.  Dave, Matt, Ryan and I was able to sneak a workday ski in of the Holy Diver Couloir on Mt. Roosevelt.  Isolated wind slabs to 8" over a very wet layer.  Many hand shears revealed mostly good bonding to the wet layer.  Wind affected down the couloir, but regardless, it was a good time with some spots of great snow !

Way to get it midweek.  I think we saw the remnants of your skin track out after skiing the mid-week storm refreshed Holy Diver on Saturday.  The rocks had shed a lot of snow along the edges, but the middle was sweet.  Cold pow with the occasional face shot in the steeper portion up top, then nice cruising pow in the mellow part to the creek.  The ski down to Snow Lake was not pretty, the ski down to Source Lake was pure survival skiing.
