Skied up and along center ridge, broke trail on the classic route up to the
observation point where I found a trail which came up a separate direction. 4
to 6 inches of fresh light snow on a crust. Up along the ridge the crust was
rock hard, below the Observation Point beyond the Weather station, the crust
could be postholed by the dog. No wind, temp below zero single digits at the
trailhead, up along the ridge about zero. Bluebird day. Surface hoar starting
to form. Saw no natural avalanches enroute. couldn’t find a finer day to tour.
Many thanks to the CNFAIC for helping to make Turnagain Pass a safe fun place
for all travelers.
