2/14, 2/15: N. Chute, Hidden Lake
« on: 02/17/15, 10:43 AM »

Obviously I don't need to say anything about the weather, but what a weekend.

Headed to Paradise with Jake on Saturday, and after breaking out of the fog and snizzle, ran up past Muir to Ingraham Flats. Skied Down Cathedral Gap and then into Nisqually Chute, which was in fantastic shape. Easily the best turns of the year so far.

On Sunday, up to NCNP with John et al. Bone dry to HL trailhead. Hiked about 1000' and then hit snow in the form of avy debris from a huge slide in the gully. A little slow going until the pitch mellowed. Never got too soft on west-facing aspects, but excellent turns nonetheless.

The usual on the blahg.

Nice work.  I almost went there on 2/16 but went for Eldo instead.  Next time..., probably soon.  Thanks for posting.
