whiten pass
« on: 11/20/15, 07:51 PM »

Up top at chair 6 cold temp crystal shinning powder about 6" deep.   Skied well all the way down to the bottom of chair 4 and then skins for skiing to protect the bases.   Winter up high sketchy down below.   Oh yeah got the first tracks in last week and then again today only today had way more snow than last week.
Where are all the young hard charging snow fanatics?   Not a one to be seen here only 20ks south east of Mt. Rainier.

Hey Phil, sounds like you're the hard charger for WP.  Here's hoping for Good season!

All the young, hard charging White Passers stay in the back bowls and don't post about it. That way all the suits stay at Crystal; it's better that way.

ouch.  I appreciate the post filbo.  I wonder the same thing all the time.  "Why am I the only one here?"  Keep it up!

I'd never been to white pass but heard good things.  Figured since I had 2 dogs for the weekend I'd venture up to White Pass and check it out. 

What a great day, maybe 5/6 people total all day.  Skinned up past chair 6 to high point on the west ridge.  Great snow, cold fluffy powder.  Really great early season turns.

Great day at White Pass!  GnarB captured the day nicely!  Special thanks to Rick and WD for showing us what rocks not to hit on the way out!  Smiley
