Patricia Peak

Ever since I enjoyed this view of Patricia Peak back on 1/11, I have been wanting to ski the big, broad slopes from the summit.

I hooked up with Steve and headed back up Rock Creek. Again.

The Junipers were in their perpetual fine form.

We chose to attain the upper slopes by following my old skin track to the southeast shoulder, then up and around this sub peak.

Interesting downhill & traversing skinning through here.

Decent skinning the rest of the way to the summit.

Summit registers.

Other attractions in the neighborhood.

We were both pretty surprised and very pleased to find consistently good, fun skiing all the way down the     big slopes on wind eroded, soft snow

We did find a little firmer snow below in a chute, but otherwise the skiing was great.

What a day.
What a nice little ski peak!
