Rainier, Jan 24-25, up Gib Ledges, ID summit ski
« on: 01/26/14, 01:38 PM »

Surreal, windless weather. Ledges in less than great shape, but wholly climbable. ID in much better shape than last January. Skiing was less than ideal to say the least, with very firm (but not icy) textured snow on the upper mountain. Two very short mandatory carries: One at Cathedral Gap, one on the slope below, which is a foot of snow away from being totally melted out. The only soft snow we skied all day was the slope below Cath Gap, the two slopes in Pebble Creek, and Pan Face. Everything else was frozen, despite the sun and warm temps.

Usual long-winded prose here:
