Ascent Trip Report

Have been meaning to use a chairlift assist all season for this or Blackcomb Pk since we learned that our epic ski passes are valid for free summer scenic lift rides. This was closer to home and we were able to bring our neighbor kid, Kennedy, along. Berries are still in season, especially along the wide ski run between the 2 backside lifts, so we had a bit of a slow ascent, grazing on a lot of berries. Great views of Glacier Pk, Howard, Dirtyface, Jim Hill, Big Chiwaukum, Stuart, Daniel/Hinman, Baring, and Gunn from up top. Becca, Kennedy, and the boys all really enjoyed this easy outing, possibly one of the last for the season before the trip to France and what seems like a pending damp autumn. Pics
