Feb 17, 2015, Glacier Peak via White mtn
« on: 02/19/15, 10:23 PM »

Got a long day of skiing in on Glacier Peak via the North Fork Sauk TH and up and over White mountain. Consistent skiable snow on the South side of White mtn all the way down to about 4500 feet elevation. Soft corn abounded throughout the day even up high on Glacier Peak, but the snow was still firm enough to make quick travel over the flatter White Chuck Glacier valley. I had the whole mountain to myself except for bumping into a group of 3 at the end of the day that had just finished the Painted Traverse and were headed up Glacier the next day. I hope they report in here as well as I would love to see their pictures.

You can see all my pictures over here: https://www.facebook.com/runwill/media_set?set=a.10205928048462676.1073741875.1303299714&type=1

Impressive! Props on nailing that in prime conditions. We were foiled a couple weeks ago by intermittent clouds that kept the snow real firm from the summit down to about 5500' right before the trail heads into the woods.

It was nice to meet you, Will!  Nicely done on your mega day tour! Some nice photos there, too.
Jason Hummel or I will most likely post a TR on our Painted Traverse adventure, with photos and a short video.
