 Fun day skiing corn   

Well after a tough day on Edwards and McClellan we decided to just chill out and sleep in. After a while we got restless and decided to go for a bike ride. We hit the castle Trail on Mt Falcon. About 3 minutes in we encountered a rattlesnake on the trail. He looks dead in the pic but it's all an act. I took half a step closer and he coiled up and the rattle went off. Pretty freaky. After the ride we headed up to Swan Mtn Road for some camping. We could only get to Parksville or so so we had a decent day planned the next morning....

Hooray for ”The Bench!” Well, that's what I've always called that ski line on Guyot, which looks pretty cool from other peaks. Nice job, Fritz!

Guyot's appeal increases by the day. How was that approach? You call it a slog - care to elaborate?

Thanks for the report.

Brian,
I don't know current conditions of the ”road” to Georgia Pass, but I uploaded 2 pics of the ridge from Georgia Pass to the summit. It's about 1,800' of gain from the pass...

Well a slog is kind of mean to this line. It all depends on how far up you can drive. You can get about 4 miles from the pass right now. The ridge climb is tough and we were tired from all the activities over the weekend. It's a great line though, super aesthetic and just plain old fun corn skiing.
