Last Friday in Aspendel

Last Friday Mary, Dori and I headed up out of Aspendel hoping to skin up towards Bishop Bowl, have a look around, and then either ski back down our ascent route or drop into North Lake.

The normal route up the moraine towards Bishop Bowl is getting a little thin, which made for some interesting skinning.

Mary perfected her bush kick turn.
Mary happily emerges from the Mountain Mahogany.
Nice views of Mt Tom greeted us from the top of the moraine.
Owing to poor skinning conditions (firm windboard) and rapid warming, we turned around and skied our ascent route. The snow was a tad on the thick side even at 11am, but provided reasonably good skiing as Mary demonstrates.
Dori teles the lower part of the moraine where we found the best snow.
Thirst quenching beers were had, and much appreciated, at the car.
