April 30, 2016 Zigzag Canyon
« on: 05/11/16, 10:18 AM »

Nice trip up to Illumination Saddle and into Zigzag Canyon just above Mississippi Head.  Got a little cliff-ed out on the NW Ridge and had to climb up for 5 minutes to exit and head back to Timberline Lodge.
Awesome snow and turns in the Canyon.  Worth a return trip.

Did you guys follow zigzag canyon all the way down to 6000 ft?  I usually allow myself only 3-4 turns in each branch of the canyon in order to be able to traverse out to the timberline lifts, but it always looks sooo tempting to keep on skiing down!
