May 20, 2014 Lake Ann, Maple Pass + DIY Ski Rocker
« on: 05/21/14, 11:58 AM »

About 4 feet of snow at the Rainy Pass pull-out (room for several cars). Water available just before Lake Ann.  No pollen--nice!  Lake Ann frozen over. 

We skied to Heather Pass and then up pt 6870 and back down to Maple Pass (just S of 6870).  The new snow from about 2 weeks ago is sure taking its time consolidating.  I guess it's the lack of reliable night-freeze.  However, the slopes immediately west of Maple Pass had excellent corn for a long ways.  When the snow snakes first appeared we stopped and skinned back up for another run.

Hollywood took a fall and jammed his ski into the snow with great force and invented a new technique for DIY ski rocker!   Wood glissaded down and started walking out  while Dicey and I took an extra run and then hauled his broken gear down.   Slopes on the east were mushier than idea but still very skiable, although we both had thigh-burn before the lake.
