    Adding to wordbird's TR on Trapper, the Barker Lake Basin was a solid Sunday adventure. Managed a couple photos too.

    The hike to the lake was easy-enough on foot, and the snow flurries combined with cold winds made it feel like a late-fall ski.

    The views were agreeable enough throughout the ascent.

    There were plans to ski that big couloir in wordbird's pic, but the combination of new snow, rapidly warming temps from the sun, and the possible presence of a huge cornice breaking above we had to bail for safer skiing. That point release only helped reinforce that concern.

    But, the turns we managed before the sun's final desecration of the new snow were oh-so divine. Some of the best June turns I've ever had.

    Getting down to the lake required a little fiddling and route-finding, but we managed it back down through sun-cupped turns and hops. Lunch was very rewarding to have post-ski; Fucking delicious sandwich.

    And then finally back at the trail-head.

    A trip to the Beartooths may still be in the cards, but I'd be happy if this book-ends the summer turns. The rivers and dirt trails are calling..
