Morse Creek to Crystal Mtn?
« on: 02/27/08, 09:25 AM »

Has anyone taken the Morse Creek Rd. up and over to Crystal Mtn?  How long of a tour and what were conditions (terrain) like?

It's been a couple years but if you live on the east side it is a great option.  Good parking on 410 at Morse Creek, short couple mile approach to the bases of Pickhandle and Crown Points, and great runs off each.  Only issue I have had is finding notrh facing runs of good length without having to meet up with the more crowded backcountry on the Crystal side.  I was thinking that the south facing runs (off above points) are in perfect condition right about now, but haven't been able to make the trek from Roslyn.
