June 3 ,2016 Paradise Glacier
« on: 06/03/16, 09:04 PM »

Ken ,Dave and I after climbing up the tourist route found the Paradise glacier smooth as silk. A bit slushy perhaps but consistent. Much fun in stable snow. We skied out the Paradise valley via golden gate and into the  Paradise Inn parking lot ending our day at the Paradise Inn patio drinking a cold one. Nice view of the Tatoosh through the lens of a pilsner.

I guess the invitation you sent got lost in the mail.  Boy, do I love that route.  How were the crevasses?

Hard to notice the crevasses just some depressions at far ends. Easy peasy to get up to drop ins along Golden Gate still . Stevens creek passable on bridges at quite a few places yet. Was tempted to stroll over to Stevens ridge for a run there but that cold pilsner was calling. No other skiers present.
