Oct 7th- Euro's attack Muir
« on: 10/09/06, 07:59 AM »

After a cafe au lait and a crossaint at Starbuck's I met my new  french ami Dr Crash and we drove to Paradise for a little randonee skiing. Grin

Clouds to Pan Point then climbed above clouds. Alas ,Friday showers had not left any new snow. There was a frozen rain crust at 7,500 and frozen dust on ice above. We climbed  to 9,000 ft and decided snow above did not warrant more work.

Fairly good ski for about 500' on extreme skier's right side then a carry over the rocks followed by survival skiing on suncups to above Pebble Creek.

Magnificent views, great company, marginal skiing. We need snow folks. Huh
Amazing what aspect can do, over in the Tatoosh it was knee deep powder Wink
Thanks for the company Yves.

Attached are a couple pictures of Scotsman walking up towards snow... Still a fair amount of vertical to go before we can think about skiing: Rainier is pretty bare now. As he said, it was a gorgeous day, and I had great company. Can't beat that!

If it's too steep, you're too old.
