We cant always get what we want and the forecast for Tuesday was cloudy and the possibility of rain so we decided to head to Mt Yamsey a broad shield volcano east of the Cascade crest. As we were driving from Klamath falls we could see that McLoughlin and Mt Scott were engulfed in clouds yet East of the crest was still sunshine. Yamsey hosts Cross country skiing during the winter and is relatively flat other then the North face which was carved out by Glaciers long ago.

After digging out the car for an hour we decided we shouldn’t push our luck anymore and this was our starting point

And I prefer consistent snow pack

This chute reminded me of Gunnbarrel at Crystal Mountain

Once we reached 6’500 feet we did a long traverse back to the car

Yamsey is relatively unknown but if you could lap that North bowl there are some gnarly lines to be had

Trip Totals
Total Ascent/ Decent 2400 feet

hell yesss. I am jealous and impressed by the raid.
I can't wait for Amar's book to come out-
especially if it includes obscure stoke like that!
There is soooo much untapped radness around here...
NW represent. Keep up the stoke!!!
Thanks

What would happen to the people if a volcano erupted on an island? If the island is small, but not tiny. I am writing a story for science and the volcano erupted and they live on an island. They don't have planes or anything. How should they try to survive? Just run away from it? Thanks.

What about lahars? do they have enough snow on island volcanoes to worry about them?
