long slog to find some fresh on shuksan white salm
« on: 03/19/15, 05:17 PM »

Since monday was so good, i wanted to check out the white salmon on shuksan.  I havent been up there all year and dont really know if anyone has?  Its a long tour from heather meadows along the arm and down to the whitesalmon.  Left the car at 8, got back a little before 10 Pm. 
Came back through swift creek, walked the trail for about a mile or so and then skinned/bushwacked up swift creek.  FYI, Bring skin wax right now, the pow is getting really sticky and spent most of the time walking with 15 pounds of snow on booth feet.
  the whitesalmon is pretty broken up with lots of ice and crevasses, making it hard to find a constant fall line

You keep going Big like this I might be heading up there.  Skied this area once, but those crevasses were more covered up and better bridged and it was also some nice +8 like you skied. However, crevasses give me the eeby jeebies. 

Nice Vid.  So far these two posts by you are the best of the year.
