January 24th, 2014 Nisqually Chutes Bluebird
« on: 01/26/14, 06:16 PM »

First time for me to ever be above 9,000' on the snowfield. Was planning on hitting the Nisqually chutes, but really didn't have much bearing for where the entrance and exit were, so asked around the crews eating lunch at Muir. Ended up being guided down by Alan, Megan, and Julie, and then eventually meeting Amar and Rob. All were welcoming and offered to not only guide me down, but also a ride back up from the bridge! That's some classy service there, and thanks guys.

Snow was awesome in the SW faces, featuring some excellent pitch and beautiful corn. Couldn't have been happier.  Just another great Juneuary day up at Muir.


Just a beautiful "summer" ski day.


First view down from Muir.


Amar at the top of the chute.


After the glacier was a little route-finding-y.


Earning it back to the car.


6152' in one run was awesome.


Actually made it out in time, but couldn't resist the picture.

Nice meeting you up there Cam.  Glad we could help out.  Some nice looking turns you were laying down up there.  Was a great day!
