On Sunday, July 31st, dookey67 and I intended on skiing Mt. Lola. Our route over the Jan Michael Vincent Danger Bridge was not only more broken and more dangerous, it was also partially blocked by a very large downed tree (about the diameter of a large truck tire.) We saw more snow possibilities further west, so our recon mission began. We encountered locked gates, downed trees blocking roads, dead ends, etc.
After many tries we wound up at the end of what I think is Perazzo Canyon.
Here is what we saw:
(Five of the six available chutes - we would ski three of them.)
When we hiked and bootpacked up to the top of the farthest looker's left chute, dookey67 did a recon scramble over the top to find more snow on an unnamed peak that we would return to on Tuesday.
We then did a traverse over to the furthest looker's right chute.
A fun day that turned out to be worth the efforts getting there. August 2nd coming up next...
