This is promising. Thanks for the beta, where did you start, French Creek? Boreas Pass? Do you think it‘d be worth to give it a shot 6/17? Contemplating an after work quick sunset ski if you think the snow will still be there.

Nice work finding the goods this late in a cruddy year.

Its good for the next week. TH is Boreas Pass. There looks to be a nice line down to the french creek drainage as well. This line was skiable from the summmit

few more questions

Where on Boreas Pass did you park? What was your starting elevation? Where you able to ski back to the car or atleast towards it? Looks like the descent went quick. Were you haulin ass for a 2.5 hour ascent? Is it all above treeline or most of it?

Sorry for the barrage of questions, never done Bald before, just trying to hit it after work today, have a small window for light and no time to do it this weekend, hence me squeezing it in. Thanks for the help.

just drive B pass until you can see the line from the road, there is a pull off on the left, very obvious. We started a little below treeline about 20 min to the snow, we hiked slow and skied fast, 10 mins back to the car from the snow. you can hike it in shoes to the top. about 1500 vert skiing
