Decided to try my hand at a little corn skiing hoping the several days of cooking had improved the conditions. Went with Ann P and Anne S from Aspendell.
Got to North Lake pretty quickly. Fools Ridge.
The lower chute was not exactly inviting. Hard to see, but there is avalanche debris in the middle. We actually descended the ribbon far left.
The upper half of the chute is splendid. Ann about to top out.
Anne booting up just below.
Nice glimpse of the upper Buttermilks and the White Mountains from the top.
Anne psyches up for the first turn.
Ann finds good snow just below the top.
The corn was pretty much ideal throughout much of the chute. We were blessed with a few periods of high clouds and a bit of a breeze which nicely extended the corn window.
Down low this little alley was playful fun.
Another fun day in the hills! Thanks Ann & Anne.
