 Hoodoo Bowl and North Chute Skiing   

I had the chance to ski last Monday but after hearing about the fatal slide on Torreys and 4 other incidents that friends got into I chickened out. I decided to fix my band saw and do some work in the garage. 2 feet of new I thought should have some time to relax. The weather was looking good to get some thing done towards the end of the week and I thought perhaps a little warm up and cool down was in order. A few trips prior we got shut down do to rapid warming and approaching storms so West Dyer was high on my list. A few days later I got turned around after skiing Prospect Mtn. That was due to grauple. I figured combining the 2 north facing lines and doing a car shuttle would be a great way to go.

Nate, Rob and myself met the famous Stan Wagon in Leadville and dropped off a car at the Mosquito Pass snow line. We then headed to the Iowa Gulch trailhead and got ready.... more words and pics at
