May 17, 2014 Alpental skinning
« on: 05/18/14, 09:12 PM »

A quick ferry trip via Bremerton for some May turns.
First time skinning at Alpy in several years; a steady parade of snow users.  Hello gravitymk! 
Skins on at the car.  Plenty of snow the whole way, with minimal stickiness and not a raindrop until driving home west of the Pass.
Passed and chatted with a few skiers, and one guy did the top of Chair 2 in 53 minutes. 
Not true corn yet, but fun slushy bumps, cups and ramps.

We started up around 5pm. Good timing for us as we missed the mountaineers parade.
