Missouri Mt, Emerald, and Iowa Conditions?

Postby Jazzob » Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:18 pm

Anyone know the conditions on the Northwest ridge route on Missouri and perhaps the other two peaks in the area? Or have any pictures of recent conditions? Thanks!

Went over Elkhead Pass last Sat (6/15). We got Emerald and Iowa and it was mostly frozen due to our early arrival and departure. Some mud and snow but not bad. Good mellow snow off Iowa for a speedy descent back into the basin below Mizzou.

What the hell were you doing over there?! Tell me you had the board and weren't just hiking...

It was a training day and I definitely missed the board descent having just rode out of the basin after hitting the Ford sisters. Carl and I rode/skied the tuning fork last Sun as a final send off to the season.
