April 17, ONP, Mount Angeles
« on: 04/18/16, 03:16 PM »

Niko summoned me for a tour and I couldn't resist. Hazy sunshine and quite warm (shorts weather) from where we began our tour, about 1/4 mile north of Switchback Trail where the creek crosses the road.  We skinned our way though down logs, patchy and breakable snow though the trees to continuous snow at about 4800 ft.  From the low saddle near the end of the Sunrise Ridge Trail we continued along the western shoulder of Angeles contouring northwest staying just below the summit block. We dropped in on the first large gully. The snow was pretty soft and offered good skiing on the descent.  A mixed bag of perfect corn and mashed potatoes as we traced our tracks back to the trailhead.

Should be plenty of snow for turns on the northface for at least a month!

Thank you, runcle, for being there when I cried Nuncle from the sticks, on the ski-out. Yes, folks, the N gullies are well-filled from top to bottom and will survive this heat wave but the approach is getting browner by the day and there's some treacherous rotten snow as my knee can testify. N
