Ascent Trip Report

Skin up, ski down. In spite of 14" of new snow over the past 48 hours, the ski area is closed. Perfect for us! It gave us the opportunity to get in some great turns on lower angle, safer slopes in an avalanche-controlled area. This would be the first time for Sawyer on AT skis. Sage would snowshoe up and switch to downhill skis at the top. With the warm weather, the skiing was less ideal than hoped and 14" of powder turned out to be 14" of heavy, slow snow on the way down - ugh. Still a great bluebird PNW day out in the mountains with the family! Pics
