I've been missing for a while - far too busy this month, it's been insane - but here are a couple from the AM. Absolutely amazing how much snow is still up there. 100cm at the heli-ski's snow stake, which blows my mind.
Left the trailhead at 6A, which was good for north aspects. I'm thinking east will require leaving the trailhead at 4:30AM. I started hiking on snow just after leaving my car. DIdn't bother to skin up, the snow was frozen. Think I'm going to need to fit my regular crampons to my ski boots and leave the skins at home.
Lots and lots of running water.
Mt. Fitzgerald, probably a camping destination this time of year. Otherwise I'd have to leave my truck at midnight to get decent skiing conditions.
Lake Peak, Wines Peak, Castle Lake. This shot looks south-ish along the Ruby Crest Trail. I'm thinking it's going to be a snow tour for a while yet.
Today's destination, one of the Liberty Chutes into the Lake Shot. I probably should have chosen one of the chutes skier's left, this one was still pretty icy. It was cooked below so waiting it out really wasn't an option.
Sweet Thing lived up to its name, though.
