But.. there still has been good snowboarding to be found. One look at the dawg on the webcam the day prior ruled out much larger lines and plans. Even with the sunny days, the snowpack above a certain elevation has not been corning up. We decided to stay around 5-6000 on south slopes. This turned out to be a good backup plan and resulted in a satisfying day. We had the whole area to ourselves besides one lonely goat bootpackin up our skintrack. What a clown. The culprit Terrain options We ended up connecting all the south slopes of plummer, the pinnacle, the castle and the manatee down almost to butler creek each run. Johns lack of split crampons had me waiting on the divide as the day turned night. As a result I ended up witnessing a spectacular sunset. We also got locked in at the gate but it was all worth it.

Great pics. The goats think the same thing when they see us trying to scramble up some sketchy rock face in snowboard boots. 😉 February 4, 2011 at 5:39 pm #635481 Salal 7 Posts Thanks – the shots are not hdr…natural light and very little processing.
