Got a late (10 a.m.) start to explore a week of snow on Shasta. 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:
