I had a great weekend skiing in the Mammoth area.
First ski of the year with my buddy Nemo. We found some very nice steep, untracked tree shots in the Sherwins. The snow was staying light in the cold air and the open glades were a joy to ski. The exact location will not be revealed although I will say we skinned up from the bottom. Use your imagination.
Nemo was appropriately stoked.
The next day I hooked up with my long time partner Stephen for a tour up Blue Crag way in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.
No tracks here either.
We elected to head up the chute system just to the west for ease of travel.
I skied this chute system back in '10 blue crag 2010 and in '09 mammoth crest 2009 (see bottom of post).
After skinning up to the throat we elected to boot up the wind buff which proved to be an efficient choice.
Special place for sure.
