North Lake

Took a quick tour up to North Lake to get some fresh air, enjoy the scenery, and assess the snow.

Looking across North Lake to Bishop Bowl area.

and Fool's Ridge. Previous trips here and here.

The winds had swung back around from the southwest. Moving snow!
Saw some small recent slides near the road. Looked similar to the kind of activity we saw on Punta.

A large group of snowshoers stayed at the hut. They apparently enjoyed sliding on this slope. Fortunately the slope did not slide on them!

Lots of zones look good to go around here. Especially above 9,500' or so. Table Mountain and lower elevation areas are still kinda thin - but close.
