September 25, 2013, Muir Snowfield
« on: 09/25/13, 06:17 PM »

Ten of us Tay diehards did the walk to just above Pebble Creek and started skinning today.  It was snoaining at Paradise and there were a couple inches of fresh snow once we left the paved trail for dirt.  We were at the limit of the low clouds most of the way to Camp Muir.  Fortunately the wind was nearly nonexistent because the winter temperature was quite a change from last week. There was just enough (4-6") fresh snow to make the descent smooth to 6800' or so with only a few lightly covered rocks grabbing our bases.  Then we packed up the skis and walked down in spitting snow and mist.

DCM and I left the parking lot about 10:30 Thursday, hit Pebble Creek at 11:30, and then had silky smooth snow from Pebble Creek on up, yesterday.  Very nice!  Saw a few familiar faces - Oyvind, Crustos and Cam (not THE Kam ;>)

We had views of the mountain on the drive up, then walked up in the cloud, which started thinning at about the 8000'.  At turn around time, it lifted way up for good views and visibility on the ski down.  The turns were fabulous, but all too short. 

Back at the parking lot and apres beers by 2:15, and home to a happy wife by 5:30 ish.  Short day, good day.  Thank you.
