Looking for Beta: Icicle Ridge or Diamond Head
« on: 02/14/17, 12:17 PM »

Has anyone been out to ski Icicle Ridge or Diamond Head (Blewitt) areas recently? I'll be in the area this weekend and am looking to try someplace new.

Some nice powder underneath a 1/2 to 3/4 inch breakable crust at Blewett.....

John - if you clear some of the crust off, I'll come ski the powder!

Well, I'm headed to Mission Ridge for tomorrow, at least. Thought I might as well get a tour out of the trip too. We've had a bit of warm weather this week, I'm hoping it might be ok for some slush skiing...

Favorite video of the season. Could have only been better on skinny skis! I had very similar exercise at Tronson area, Blewitt.
