May 11, 2014 Birthday Tour
« on: 05/16/14, 05:32 PM »

Popped my Birthday Tour cherry this past Sunday - was pretty creamy and grabby, I think from the previous snow. But weather, wind, and people were wonderful!! Thankful to have a easy traverse back out to the hwy and only a 15 minute wait for a ride, not many people were even looking at us coming around the 2-lane uphill switchback with no room for turning off.

Refrozen on the way up to Blue Peak Col, creamy and a little grabby on Madison Ave. with about 2-3" ski penetration. Same on the option west of Copper col descent. Traverse out was easy.
