 Southeast Gully via Silverheels Creek   

When I got home from Hippie Trees I was spent from the drive and looking forward to getting a rest day. Then I got a call from Gary and he brought up the idea of skiing Silverheels. We were hoping for some clear warm weather that would soften up the snow and give us our first corn run of the year. I met up with Gary and Eddie in Como at 7am and headed up Boreas Pass Road to go try and find the trailhead. Finally we found it and were on the move at 8:01.

We headed up the jeep road for a while but figured that we needed to be up a different drainage so we headed off into the woods. This lead us up into the drainage below Silverheels Creek. From there we made a bee line for the ridge to our south. Up through fairly dense trees we went. Finally at the ridge we got the best views of the day as there was a sweet lenticular cloud formation to enjoy. The only problem was that this beautiful cloud was blocking out sun. Oh well we're here let's go peak bagging.... More words and pics at makingturns.com

Did you get any pics of the Cameron/Lincoln ampitheatres? How does the coverage look on that side?

Solid is the understatement of the year. It was like East Coast up there. The lenticular cloud blocked the sun on the line all day.

Sorry no pics of Lincoln and Cameron. Both looked in from the summit though and the cabin chutes were fuller than I've ever seen them. It's gonna be a sick spring for sure.
