May 30-31, 2014: Mt Adams
« on: 06/01/14, 02:39 PM »

A couple of rippin chick friends from Bozeman joined me on this most excellent ski off the summit of Adams.

A few points that the photos might not cover:

* We were able to drive to within 10 minutes of Cold Springs. Bring a chainsaw or winch... lots of unstable burnt trees ready to block your ass in.

* Snow is in wonderful shape for the most part, except for the top 1000 ft or so which consists of blue water ice nodules. Not worth skiing at this time.

* We bailed on the SW chutes due to painful boot issues (and not wanting to make the long traverse on her weighted sore side). The Crescent Glacier was a fantastic substitute.

* We skied without trouble back to the trailhead.

* After seeing a couple of folks on foot on the South Ridge and a couple of splitters on the false summit, we saw nobody during our entire descent until near the trailhead. A special day, indeed!





































It was so good that I had to go back up to the Lunch Counter the next day. There was good lightning and thunder Friday night. Lots of folks out on Saturday.


Cheers,

~ Scott

Regarding the road: how bad are the ruts this year. . . , you think OK in Suby Outback?

At the time that I was up there, I would have felt quite comfortable with taking a Subaru up the road.
