BS, Leyland, Ale Capone, and I started at 4:30 am up to the Sherpa Glacier of Mt Stuart after sleeping in a snowmobile trailer for a few hours that night. As the sun rose we were blessed with partly cloudy skies and moderate winds. Got to the base of the line around 10:30am and topped out around 2:30.

The snow was pretty wind effected, and the late afternoon flat light made for a cautious decent. Got back to the car around 8pm for a 25.2 mile round trip with just over 6200 vertical feet gained, with some amazing views and fun turns with good company. A big thanks to Leyland for pulling through, and driving home after an mega day. This ended up being a prelude to Scott's Dragon Tail triple couloir mission a couple days later...

Admittedly not as fun to watch or ride as the past few videos, but the experiance was worth the less the ideal shredding. It could have been a lot worse.

Thanks for at least giving it a shot. The time laps change over is pretty cool.

Ya it wasn't a bottomless "lets see what pillows we can get Kololo to drop kinda day. But just as satisfying in its own respect.
