May 17, 2016 Heliotrope Corn Speed Harvest
« on: 05/17/16, 11:21 PM »

Snow was almost continuous from right around the treeline.  There is one short carry on the Hogsback trail before reaching continuous snow for which ever right you choose.  The waterfall on the skiers left side of the Hogsback has a nice little gap to jump.  It isn't that high, but you do want to have some speed to clear the gap.  Conditions were starting to get a little slow towards the end of the day.  Reports from other skiers coming down the Coleman-Deming said snow conditions were superb up high!

I think I was one of the skiers from up high that talked to you. We ascended the North Ridge Tuesday and skied down from the false summit a little late, around 3. The Roman wall skied like a champ and the whole Coleman glacier was nice as well. Good coverage, very little crevasse navigation required. Great corn most of the way.

Friday I skied the Easton which was also really great corn up high and fantastic coverage.
