Had thoughts of a solo up Giddy Gulch but ran into a some of the crew who invited me to help break trail to Helen. The gulch looked awesome with all the new dumpage: Breaking trail, only 2500 more steps to go… Safety Meeting (we dug a pit too) Results were bomber except the top 3″ of wind buff which R2’d but we all agreed was too thin to create consequences. The bottom 3 feet to last weekends melt freeze crust was rock solid: Lake Helen with Green Butte Ridge in the background: Surveying a thousand with 2500 more to go. The moraines make for some fun surfy features especially on the styrofoam wind buff for the first 2000 feet. Sorry no riding shots: All in all looking good for the spring. :clap: March 18, 2012 at 6:23 pm #653811 christoph benells 717 Posts yeah man shasta is a special place…glad to hear its looking good for spring time. any lumarians up there?
