    Yeah Gimpy! - looks like you made the right turns, and were certainly on the right path. Good Maze to never get out of, if you ask me.

    BTW, Shasta is skiing great. Today, Brewer Creek had great corn. About an hour walk on dirt. North facing was powder up high.

    I know it's the wrong forum, but trying to point the East side lovers towards good coverage

    So where is this Shasta of which u speak rod?

    First 2 sets of pics are from the y on conness and the impeccably smooth conness glacier. Last set is from the lookers left north peak couloir. Typical waterfall downclimb required to exit n peak zone. All pics are from 2 days ago/Sunday. As jorion already noted, the lower flanks of saddlebag are cupped badly but the upper zones are still holding the goods.

    You probably know this, but there's another way to come down from the north peak couloirs.
    From the right one (Lookers), go straight ahead, still on snow.
    When the snow ends, turn right. There's a ramp there that bypasses the waterfall and takes you to the flat area, way below the waterfall.

    no ski stoke at the moment but need some advice -

    I need a killer camp spot on ebbets/sonora.

    Requirements:
    • family camping, so car camping but a bit of a walk is fine we can hump the gear up the road if the spot is good.
    • high up elevation-wise as possible - already cooking down low in the day time
    • pretty

    We have a default spot we always go up another pass - (where ppl are skiing currently, pm for details) - feels like backpacking but doable w small kids - but looking to expand out a bit.

    pls PM your secret spots and I promise not to share.

    Thanks!

    Give me a shout on Saturday and lets make some turns.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Skied one of the Conness chutes yesterday.
    Prime condition, soft snow.
    It was the only one on that ridge without a bergschrund.

    Approach sucks.

    I was going to ski North peak today, but hours of walking on dirt didn't sound as appealing as it did a week ago.

    Found some goggles by the dam. Was it lost by the pair that skied the couloir just before me?Click image for larger version.
