June 17, 2017 Gothic Basin
« on: 06/18/17, 01:40 PM »

Had a predictably rough approach (about 2 hours to snow at a good pace) but found awesome coverage and snow in Gothic Basin. Snow on the trail filtered out all but one other party, three mountaineers doing Del Campo. Routefinding is a bit tricky lower down so definitely bring a GPS with a preloaded track. We scrambled up Del Campo, which is continuously skiable from ~300ft below the summit, then headed up towards Gothic peak. We turned around 400ft from the top due to time constraints, but it looked to be skiable for another 2-300ft.

On the exit, we were able to ski to about 4k with a little bit of bushwhacky survival skiing.

....great stuff. I mean who doesn't want to go and ski in a place called Gothic Basin. Not an area that I go to, but I'm intrigued. Excellent photo too.
