March 24 2013 Pinnacle Peak Area
« on: 03/25/13, 03:50 PM »

We arrived at the parking lot of Paradise road at 9am. The snow at the start was about 4" pow on top of a solid crust layer. On the way up there were spots of sun effected snow and crust but overall pretty great conditions. We gained the ridge to the East of Pinnacle and skied a line from there. Then we took the ridge east and skied down (north). The skiing was great, light for PNW standards. The South slopes were crusty and heavy. The North slopes and trees were excellent. The snow stability was solid and we did not encounter any avy warning signs. There were some sloughs on South facing slopes.

Ok I tried everything to get the photo to embed, here is a link to my flickr.
