April 14, 2013, Catherines Nipple and Hyak laps
« on: 04/17/13, 08:43 AM »

Headed up to the 'yak to get some powder turns in.  Shade skied great, but there were lingering slabs in places.  Sun was in full force and temps at the lift hut said 50F!

Lapped the front, the back but the highlight was the fun creek crossing and exploring Catherine's cliffs.  For some reason I couldn't talk my friends into following me across the creek...

We were out there a little later in the afternoon... great day to be out. I was glad that as soon as I saw your skintrack up towards the cliffy parts of Catherine, I also noted a downtrack Smiley

We talked to your friends, and watched your progress climbing up , then did forgot to watch until too late.  Saw your down track over the cliff band,  but missed the actual event.  Nice!

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.
