Ski Democrat

I was pleasantly surprised to skin the standard route on Democrat with very few rocks. The descent on South Slope was incredible. I was glad the 40 degree hill held as I was blessed with beautiful corn for about 1500 feet. get it while you can...

Did you approach from the road leading to Kite Lake? If so, how close were you able to drive to the TH?

About a mile from Th at the tin building. Heat should take care of snow on road fairly soon.
