TR with video link, June 20, 2004, near Pacific Crest Trail
Sunday on the drive up past the patches of snow a chute caught my eye. After driving right next to a wall of snow and parking near the top of the road we headed toward the chute above the Pacific Crest Trail.
Here is a view from directly below the chute:
A view from the top looking down the chute:
A view from the top of the chute looking out:
A view from the road looking up (with arrows):
Green arrow - start/finish of hike 1/4 mile away.
Blue arrow - beginning of 1st and 2nd runs and beginning of video.
Purple arrow - ending of video.
Red arrow - end point of 2nd run and start of the hike back up.
There was great snow at the top. Perfect corn.
The big bowl at the bottom right was full of suncups the size of big bowls that you would use to serve a large family salad during a Thanksgiving feast.
Here is a link to the video:

Please be very patient with the download if you have a dial-up connection.
The turns at the top made the hike in and out well worth it.

I think the video link might be busted.

Hey Vets - where exactly is this?? The Pacific Crest trail is pretty long
Great trip report!! And, despite what everyone says, nice skis I have the same setup.

Are you using a computer with Windows 98 on it? I have heard from others that the video hasn't been working on those machines. It seems to work great on XP. I'm not sure about how it works on a Mac.
Thanks for the additional video link.
This area is off of the Red Lakes turn-off (Hwy. 88, east of Carson Pass) heading toward Lost Lakes. It is the bowl that you see on the right on the road just past the patches of snow that often have the rails, etc. set up there.
The PRs are nice and light for the hike up and wide enough for an easy ski down. They are effortless to turn and laugh at crud snow. But you already know that. However, I do switch to my heavier big stix 106s for softer/deeper/etc. snow.
