Observation: Hatcher Pass

Location: Microdot

Route & General Observations

After making it up the near impassable road in the Forester, we toured from the Independence Parking lot to the ridge below the first bench of Microdot. The visibility was poor, but the skiing was great on low consequence terrain. I wasn’t able to see most of Microdot or Marmot to see if there were any fresh avalanches.
