Duck Pass

Steve and I headed up to Duck Pass today. Great coverage, nice snow, and pretty light made for a good day.

Steve skins up towards the pass near Barney Lake.

Barney Bowl is filling in.

 Pika Peak on the right from Duck Pass.

Not sure of the name of the this peak. Pretty one though.

Although much of the snow near the pass was wind affected we managed to link up some nice patches on the way down.

Then we had a lot of skating, double poling, herring boning, side stepping and fun powder down to Coldwater Campground.

Fun day!

No signs of instability out there today. Small pillows were nonreactive. Surface hoar was observed in the sheltered areas below treeline, but absent higher up.
