Mammoth Crest 1/3 & 1/4.

Trying to catch up here!
We had great skiing to start the year.

As you can see, there was a some wind damage to the snow. It was worse around treeline than it was higher up.

This is Dave King getting ready to drop a short narrow shot above TJ bowl. The wind was blowing a sporty 30mph and temps were single digits. COLD.

This is Steve coming out of the little chute. The snow was softish wind pack. You can see where I kicked off a small 6" or so slab.

The crew exiting on TJ Lake after a fine day. The runs we skied are above and to the left of the large bowl (TJ bowl).

Headed out again the next day.

Today's objective! The narrow chute on the left is known as Blue Crag chute.

Blue Crag looking, well, blue! Note the inviting entrance to Blue Crag chute. It was still very thin/rocky in it's midsection.

This is Dave skiing the upper part of the couloir we skied. Since the guy is pushing 65 years old I won't say anything about his style. The guy gets it done.
