October 19, 2013, Mt Adams, Southside
« on: 10/21/13, 02:16 PM »

Excellent skiing on the Southside of Adams this weekend. Continuous snow started ~15 minutes from the car. From there we skinned the direct “South Butte route” which required no portages but may require by next weekend. The descent down the summit face was the smoothest I can recall. Mostly excellent clean, fast corn snow down the south spur, the lunch counter, and all the way back to within 15 minutes of the car with it becoming rocky at the base of the Crescent. Excellent Autumn colors in the forest and foothills.

Finished the day with pizza at “The Station” café in Trout Lake. The food here is fantastic. Highly recommend.  This is the Chevron that you come to as you enter Trout Lake. Only downside is they close at 8pm, so plan your ski day accordingly.

Fantastic ski day. The day also marked my 10th year of continuous TAY.

No need to be modest when the conditions are great! A wedding party walked by when I was changing in the T-Line parking lot on Saturday.  For a minute I thought,  "should I feel embarrassed?"  Well.. maybe 1/2 a minute. That sun was really nice.

Fantastic ski day. The day also marked my 10th year of continuous TAY.

Congrats!
This would have been such a perfect way to reach that milestone, and it would have been such a perfect reenactment of our October 2007 Adams summit ski, except for one missing element:  me.  (Sigh...)

Oh well, snow guns are blasting away at Killington for a weekend lift-served opening, so sloppy seconds for self-propelled ascension on Monday to keep my since-1992 October streak going.
