March 1st, Rock Mountain
« on: 03/02/15, 11:05 AM »

Headed up rock mountain Sunday - trail was mostly dry until 4500' where we hit continuous snow.  Skinning was a bit tough with a mostly hard surface, making me wish I brought ski crampons.  Slippery side-hilling made for slow travel and a 2pm summit.  The views were pretty spectacular, although we didn't dawdle for too long as the weather was turning and wind picking up.  The ski down was so-so, the snow surface was pretty firm but not terrible.  Our ski down the ridge back to the car was made much faster by staying a few hundred feet below the ridge-line.

Glad to have gotten out in some good weather!
