August 6-8, ONP, Royal & Deception Basin
« on: 08/09/17, 02:05 PM »

I took a trip up to Royal Basin to scavenge for the few skiable lines that remained. We camped at Royal Lake which hosted great swimming and horrible bugs. Upon gaining Deception Pass, we were lured to the descent options on Hal Foss Peak. Its North face provided an 1000' aesthetic line with manageable sun cuppage. We scrambled back over the pass and enjoyed another 600' of shredding on the way back to camp.  Kudos to all the folks who have skied here back when there was more snow... I hope to join your club soon.

I was having a hard time imagining the whole place covered in snow. Thanks for posting the pic. When was it taken?
