October 27, 2013 Mt. Rainier above Pebble cr.
« on: 10/28/13, 08:48 AM »

My plan was to ski from camp Muir but with the crack of noon start, and the howling wind, I ran out of commitment.  There was a hardy collection of boarders and skiers out and about. One good side of a late start was that I actually had great visibility. If you could find the right spot it was nice wind packed powder, not in the right spot very loud refrozen corn.

...but with the crack of noon start...

HAHAHA!  Did you say "crack of noon?"  I know those guys who ski at Rainier start comfortably late, but Jamie, I think they mean 9-ish Smiley

Sure would have liked to join you on this one.  One of these day's.  Sunny ski from Muir to Paradise.  It's in the cards for sure.
