April 26, 2016 - Black Peak
« on: 04/27/16, 12:38 PM »



Ross Freeman and I skied Black Peak on Tuesday. We found generally good corn snow thanks to the cool temperatures (5000ft freezing level). There was an inch or two of new snow on Sunday night which brightened up the snowfields and didn't mess up the skiing surface too much.

On the summit I scattered a few ashes from my wife Steph. She joins my brother Carl on top of Black Peak. It was the first peak the three of us climbed together, back in 1981. Fond memories.

Lowell, I'm not sure we are worthy of sharing such a personal moment, but thanks so much for letting us in.  Makes me happy to share the good with the sad.
