Oct 25, 2013, Hidden Lake Peaks
« on: 10/27/13, 09:13 AM »

Was going to hike up to Hidden Lake and eponymous peaks, but found deep snow reports on hiking sites, so we decided to ski and snowshoe. There was no snow on the approach until reaching the upper meadows, and above that it was patchy and hard. At the peaks there was not nearly enough to ski, and it was variable breakable crust.

Still the views were spectacular, and it was my first ski trip in five years, so it was wonderful! Got about a dozen stem/jump turns in the crust...and a fall or two.

Beautiful pic Matt, and welcome back to the snow-sliding.

Thanks Marcus, I am glad to be back. Looking forward to the white stuff this year, especially come April and the corn harvesting can begin!

p.s. eventually we will connect via email!
