 Before the weather   

Got up for a nice tour before the weather rolled in. Dan joined me for this trip. First up was Peak 10 and its south slopes. The snow was pretty lame. Kind of crusty and not worth the effort. So we made for the saddle with Crystal. Up we went and enjoyed buttercream snow down to the lake. The snow was awesome. The we checked ou a cool old cabin and made for the exit gully. Found a nice steep section with good snow. Down below the lower lake it was corn to the truck. Fun stuff. More pics at my site.

Gonna ski this soon but I‘m gonna need to see some sunny and warm days before I do. If it‘s anything like 4th of July Bowl, which it should be as it‘s the same aspect then it ain‘t ready yet. We found alot of wind loading and wind slab at the top of 4th of July Bowl yesterday.
