  • Avalanche Lake Ski (from UW) Sat 2.10

    Was going to hike to summits but the excellent ski conditions were irresistible. Skied from Upper Works to Avalanche Lake. It was a beautiful day in the woods. No wind, even on the lakes.

    Evidence of post-holing on the trail, but the powder was deep enough to not be a bother. Passed a couple carrying snowshoes on their packs. Heard about another larger group not using snowshoes or skis.

    Makes no sense to me, How is bare-booting in deep snow easier than wearing snowshoes?

    Its not. Some people are either inherently ignorant, inconsiderate, selfish, or just dim-witted. Take your pick.

    Sounds like a great trip! I've been wanting to ski this route for the last few year but either time or conditions are never on my side.
    My mind was wandering like the wild geese in the west.
