May 5-6 White & Cayuse Pass pre-corn
« on: 05/06/13, 10:32 PM »

Conditions
White - skiable N aspects, less skiable S aspects
Cayuse 3-6 feet base.
Heavy and sloppy in the sun.  Should be all corned up later this wk.  There is still a lot of new snow from last weeks storm, especialy along the crest.  Large, scary looking cornices.  S facing melting out fast.  Time the open aspects for sun exposure.  Great spaced tree skiing.  Thicker trees tended to be icy, especialy lower down (4k ft).

TR
I skied S from White Pass and camped at Shoe Lk where I investigated a clear chute down to the snow machine rd on the N Fork Tieton.  Today I skied S of Shoe Lk along the PCT and broke a ski stomping slush off the ski.  The metal edges held it together to get me out.  So much for foam core skis!
A few turns on my tele gear to round out today.

I think the N. Fork Tieton road (NF-1207) is closed to snowmobiles. How did the chute down to the road look? Sorry about your broken ski.
