Novemeber 8, 2013 Baker Ski Area + Hemispheres
« on: 11/08/13, 07:03 PM »

Parked at the White Salmon gate, a wet couple inches there at 3,400 ft. Skinned-on, base of Chair 8 (3,900ft)  where there was maybe 8-10". That morphed to 2-4 feet at the top of Chair 8, 5,100 ft. Had a great lap under chair 8 down to to about 4,400 ft. 2nd lap vis was in-and-out, and flat like it gets up there,  so we u-turned abt 1/2 way up the hemi's. Snowpack seemed pretty stable...and right-side-up. Did two laps in complete hero settled pow with great skiing down to about 4,200 but very thin cover below that.  Some wonderful vistas during the sunny periods. Pics to follow.

Friday was a great day up there; by Saturday things had settled a bit.
