White Pass to HWY 2 Via the Poet Range
« on: 05/08/16, 11:53 AM »

I wanted to share a story about skiing from the N. Fork Sauk River to HWY 2 via the Poet Range. I'd post the story here, but there are over 60 photos and a few thousand words.

Enjoy!

Here are a few photos:











Here's the rest of the story...

Perfectly Sane,

That's a great moniker. BTW, I think every adventure is perfectly sane on google earth Wink Too bad reality isn't so kind. I guess it helps the in story telling at least. Thanks for reading!

great write up jason!  it's cool to see how good all those photos i remember you taking turned out.  i really like the shot of the indian head descent, even though it looks like i'm trying to punch my way through an invisible wall.

thanks again for going "fishing" down the whittier couloir.  we'll have to go back for that one in better conditions.

and of course, here's the shameless obligatory link to my video of the trip...

Great vid, thanks for sharing and if you don't leave the link we can't watch. So nothing shameful about leaving links, I do all the time.

My favorite part was the crash on the jump. Funny.
