    Devils Backbone ridge route to Baldy summit, Southern California.

    Started at Baldy ski area at 0730.
    First part of ridge:




    View of our descent from the ridge:


    Final summit push:


    Nice view from the top:


    Snow in the middle section of the chute was really soft, rest of the bowl was perfect corn.




    Snow was so good we skinned up for a second run:


    Now I know I'm a bit of a Patagonia snob, but skinning up in jeans and a cotton t-shirt seems a bit crazy. If tags come back "iceman skis in jeans."


    Skiing below the ski hut was interesting:


    Made a couple runs on Thunder Mt., back at the ski lifts in the afternoon and it was corned up nicely. Run down to parking lot was good also.

    Mountain biking on Sunday...gotta love SoCal winter.

    Looks like it's still hanging in up there. How was Devil's Backbone? In particular, what were conditions like on that face that you have to traverse after the razor's edge ridge section just out of the resort?

    Backbone was good. North facing stuff had good coverage, but don't think it is corning yet, south facing looked a bit thin in spots.
