Yodelin is an old out of operation next to stevens pass resort. The nicely spaced trees are a decent place to play when avi conditions are high. And since they where rising to high today, and I was solo, it was a good choice.
I skinned up to the summit point with the intention of dropping north, then making a decending traverse back to the lot. I was going to do this in split mode for more mobility. After the transition, and a little bit if traversing, my dog decides he likes fall line better. I end up riding down to the road in split-tele style. Popped out somewhere closer to smithbrook road. Made for a very nice 2,000' of tree riding. Too bad I couldn't hitch back because of my dog. Conditons where rapidly deteriorating anyway, so I bailed.
Even nailed the happy ending in split mode. Then Lucky decided he wasn'tt dropping. I had to climb back up and basically body slide down with him.... with truckers driving by honking and shit.
