    TR: Dunderberg, 9/2/12

    On Sunday I joined dookey67 and gone2alpine for some September turns at Dunderberg.
    Upon arrival we were joined by a couple of Dunderberg tele skiing veterans, Eric and Thomas.
    We were also joined by another special guest - more about that later.

    We started out at Hidden Samurai Glacier.

    Vets looks for a line:


    One gone2alpine...

    ...followed by two gone2alpines...

    Looking back at Hidden Samurai Glacier:


    Next, we would head to Jack's Glacier...

    Jack's Glacier panorama:


    The ice cave we explored two weeks before had melted out and fallen off into the pond.

    Before leaving we had a special visitor. Next...

    This could make returning for October turns more interesting.

    Great stoke getting after the last little patch of snow before the new season starts.

    Of all the shit a person might pack into an area like that, That stupid hat?

    Vid of Optimus Prime helmet rolling down over the rocks would have been worth a look

    It is about 75 miles from my door to the snow. However, due to the interesting last 5 or so miles, the drive time is around an hour and 45 minutes (which is the same as my drive time to Mammoth.)

    This weekend is a possibility, depending on weather and transportation.

    Yes! A friend sent me a video from there last week. Besides the man-eating suncups it looked like there were also crevasses big enough to get lost in.
