Red Cone Shoulder


After a great, stormy day riding lifts on Saturday, Anne and I ventured into the snowy backcountry in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.
We headed up to the eastern flank of Red Cone following a well crafted skin track put in by a pair of friendly locals.

Fine skiing was had with about six inches of light snow over a denser base.
We took three runs in the open glades enjoying the changing views from the top as the next storm gathered force to the west.
The backside of Mammoth just to the north.
More great glade skiing.
Topped off by shooting out of the enchanting forest.
