Backcountry Ski Tour

This past weekend I ski toured out Owl Creek to see what the snowpack was  doing and if there is any soft snow to make some turns.  Here's what I found...
Cold Temperatures and clear skies keeps the snow soft

Savier's (Silver Peak) Pk looms in the background as I stop to dig a hole in the snow

Surface hoar growing on a White Bark Pine bough.  Amazing!

Turns from the ridge.  Snow surface is weak and faceted, but soft and fun skiing.

The Austrian Chutes as seen from the Coyote/Owl Creek divide.

Skiing is an amzing way to see the world.  Join the OLA and come skiing with the Community School!
