February 1-2, 2014, Crater Lake Ski Circumnav.
« on: 02/06/14, 12:40 PM »

My heavy duty girlfriend and I made a ski circumnavigation of Crater lake last weekend by the rim-drive route (33 miles, ~8000'). We found fast skinning conditions on consolidated snow with very little exposed ground.

Photos and Report here: http://mountainlessons.com/skiing/crater-lake-ski-circumnavigation

Contrary to prior reports we thought that clockwise was the way to go for sure.  Additionally, other reports of the record at 8 hrs are poorly researched. 6.5 hours appears to have been accomplished by multiple parties.

Nice pics.  Props for doing it on AT gear.  You are strong.  Amazing how thin the snow is on the backside.

Looks beautiful. You may find a different way to describe your girlfriend other than "heavy duty" though. They seem to frown on that sort of thing.
