November 16th, 2013, Summit Central
« on: 11/16/13, 01:54 PM »

Not really a "backcountry" trip, but the lifts haven't started turning at Summit yet and there was untracked snow on the ground, so we went for it.  Surprisingly good, actually - despite a lot of vegetation poking through, we never hit bottom on the way up or down.  Snow was a little heavy, but still unconsolidated and floaty.

Made for a short, pleasant and fun mellow tour on a Saturday morning.

Hey Brian,  sorry I missed you.  I was up there for a training day.   Kneel Turner and I did a lap in the late afternoon.   Surprised how good it was.   FAT skis make the mashed potato world go round.   I imagine your board floated just fine eh?  Ed did at least one more lap in the gathering disk after I left.   He's an iron man.

Hey Don!  Sounds like a lot of the cool kids were at Snoqualmie today.  Cheesy  Dunno if you know "BBq" Bob, but he was up there training today as well.  Certainly decent conditions for a board.
