5/27/2013 Alpental
« on: 05/27/13, 09:47 PM »

Planned to do the folklife tour, but ol was replaced by uc. Headed up through alpental to knoll 1, encountered sticky goo from the new snow. Said "folk this" and skied lower I. It was quite good on the left side. Firm corn. Had to have more, so went to the top. Adrenalin and lower I were most fun and fast....no sticky. Raining and foggy..we got quite wet.

Serac? Definitely needed to boot it 30 feet to gain admission.

Are there crevasses opening up on Snake Dance?
Did you rope up?
