Thielsen - May 7
« on: 05/07/16, 08:55 PM »

First time skiing this peak. What a great adventure. Very different from the other OR volcanoes. More compact and craggy with a very fun scramble up the summit pinnacle. Conditions were pretty good, if very soft. We were ascending the SW bowl at 9 am, and that would have been the perfect time to have been descending. But, super fun anyway. Wonderful line down the SW bowl, and incredibly fun tree skiing from there to within 1/2 mile of the trailhead.

We were astonished to be the ONLY DAMN PEOPLE on the mountain. I mean, I love MSH, Hood, and Adams, but this was a treat. Baffles me why more people don't ski this peak. Go get it while you can this season!

We had beers cached in the snow by the car. Exactly ONE was stolen while we were gone. We were torn between 'that sucks' and 'cool, they didn't take them all.'
