There have been several instances this winter where one is reminded that "you fall, you die" is more than a catch phrase. Sometimes people fall, and die.Move upside and let the man go through...

well put 261, now on a lighter note,
the southern resort they named crystal held alot of fun snow today that softened to perfection in the 40* heat.
on a side note the route to the bottom is kaput unless like me you want to walk for an hour from lucky shot to tinkerbell to base area. met a waterfall a mud bog and alot of elk poop.
took the gondy home at the end of a nice day and hot boxed the marley lovin god out of it
that was also fun

Many of you know this spot:

Silver Peak tour last night. Road open to within 150m of Windy Pass. Travel along the old growth/clear cut margin still goes, but soon it'll be better to walk the PCT and ascend through the big mountain hemlocks. At least another two weeks of skiing up there, probably more.

50-60 mins or so from downtown to the TH assuming good traffic flow. Most of the runs are ~1000 vert or so.Move upside and let the man go through...

We've done it in 90 minutes with a pause at the top o' the ridge, but it's better to hang out up there for awhile and/or do some laps and enjoy the lovely old growth mountain hemlock forest.
When are you moving to Seattle, Sam?

Yeah it's doable, though I kind of like my ski time to be greater than the total drive time. It's about 1700vt from the road parking to the top and with a decent pace doesn't take too much over an hour of skinning, but the first 600vt or so is on the road or on low angle approach through clear cut. Pretty easy to leave work @5pm, ski several laps and be back in town before 10pm though.
Even easier access in the Alpental Valley, though now it's melted out below 3600ft and would require a 500vt climb to start skinning.Move upside and let the man go through...

I'm with ya about ski time > drive time, but I love the quick tour of Silver Peak with da buds or solo if I can't find anyone to go. My first Silver Peak tour was in 1989 in leather tele boots. I figured last night was around #50.
