Well the plan this week was to go for Mt Helen's South Face, then it changed to Crystal's east slopes and then both my partners backed out the morning of due to various ailments so there you have it. What's quick and easy with little avy hazard. Quandary's East slopes. I skied Quandary's North Gully back in 1993 but only have 1 picture that survived.

While I was driving up I couldn't help but notice how windy it was. National Weather service said it was only supposed to be in the teens as far as wind went. It was higher for sure. Graceful snow plumes could be seen streaming of the top of Peak One on the drive out of Frisco. The rest of the numbered peaks were in the "clouds". I went to check out the Pennsylvania Creek trailhead to see how far up the road you could get and decide what I wanted to do. I drove over to Blue lakes road and parked. Snow devils were dancing about on the east ridge.... More words and pics at my site
