    A little skin yesterday, tried to get to the top of Abe’s Chair but got turned around a little over half way due to sketchy snow pack. Northerly winds over the past 24 hours have loaded many high elevation slopes. Even on slopes that haven’t been wind loaded, a 12-16 inch thick slab sits atop very weak faceted snow. Although the snow pack is considerably sketchy up top, it remains thin down below 8,000′.

    Abe’s Chair from the parking lot

    About 2/3’s up the lookers left arm.

    The view to the South with Galena Peak.

    This is where we decided to turn around, if you look in the foreground you can see a small slab that ran about 100 yards to our left.

    Some tech lines in here when it fills in a bit more.

    The way out.

    Sorry there were no riding shots, we took a super mellow decent…

    About 30 miles North of Ketchum, Idaho. Lots of good terrain, not a lot of people.
    We just need more snow…

    Is that near the sawtooths? I was there this summer to mtn bike and the mountains there are sick, but from talking to the locals sounds like there unfortuntaely isn’t much of a snowpack to work with there usually.
