Hogback creamy snow & crown slide 4/20
« on: 04/20/14, 08:54 PM »

North face at near 7000 ft had a few inches of nice creamy fresh.   Dug a pit on the south facing bowl and found some real unsettled not quite sugary snow under the 5 inch wind slab that went down a foot and half at least.
skied a  small crown slide on a NE facing steep shot at about 6300 ft which was a bit of a surprise, but all went well.
Heading back to the resort on the NE face of Gunsight lots of tracks, with no slides but watched a volunteer ski patroler with his kid who was probably 9 or 10 ski that bowl with no beacons, shovels or probes.
Pretty good ski day all in all.

It's the Hogback bowl of Hogback Peak and the cordillera that runs for about a mile or more just a hop skip and a jump from chair 6 of white pass ski area.   A primo spot that stays untraveled due to the $50 lift ticket for those without a season pass.
