Dec 8 - Blackcomb - Decker - Spearhead - Husume
« on: 12/10/07, 10:17 AM »

Day 1 - we headed over to the Decker area from the Blackcomb backcountry access gates along with about 3 other groups - boy did it get crowded.  We skied off Decker, then the Spearhead then down Husume.  Not enough time to get to Trorey due to a late start

Looks like a good trip and nice pics LeeL.

Zap those blue circles are points of alien abduction.  The purple one is their lz. Grin

They might have given up on Shasta. Grin

zap - its a Google earth thing - they're places where people took pictures.  You have to load up a google earth file to see it.
