Forums Trip Reports Moonlight Baker BC 3/21-22/08 Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 15 total)Author Posts March 25, 2008 at 8:37 pm #569933 jcocci 699 PostsSnoslut, Eli and I decided to hit up the Baker BC last Friday and Saturday. I had to work part of the day an Friday so the plan was for to meet up with them in the Lake Ann valley Friday evening and camp out and hit Mt Ann on Saturday. I skinned into to where they had set-up camp and arrived at camp around 6:30pm. They were still out making turns when I got there so I just set-up my stuff and waited for their return. Was able to watch their last run of the day back down to camp. I didn’t see it happen (I’m sure snoslut will elaborate more on this as well) but Eli set off a fairly good sized slide that took him for a little ride that was a little unnerving. He ended up losing both of his poles. Anyway I guess they had experienced some unstable conditions on earlier runs so after some discussion we decided it probably be best not to hit Mt Ann the next day. So we ate dinner and decided to pack up and skin out, head back to the parking lot and sleep there for the night instead. Lucking snoslut had some extra poles back at he car for Eli so it was something that would’ve been necessary anyway. Little did we know though that it happened to be a full moon on Friday night and the sky was clear. It was dark when we left camp, around 9:30pm, and we were in for a bit of treat skinning out under a full moon. The whole valley was lit up and didn’t need headlamps for a most of it. The pictures don’t do it justice. We got one really good run in back to the car around 11pm. Light, fluffy powder at 11pm under a full moon is pretty sweet! We discussed going out for more moonlight runs but decided that if we were to get up early the next day and tour that it might be best to head to bed. On Saturday we just toured the Table Mtn area and had some great snow with a sunny day.If anyone wants to see more/all of the photos feel free to check em out at http://gallery.mac.com/jcocci#100276Eli and Snoslut – Moon rising g]Full moon in the valley Snoslut Eli and Snoslut in the valley Eli and Snoslut heading up for first run Snoslut dropping in Snoslut (don’t mess up my track) Snoslut Eli Eli (Mt Shuksan) Snoslut Eli Snoslut Eli Eli Eli Eli’s has had enough for the day Eli and Snoslut heading out, Good Day!

Im glad that Eli made it out of the slide okay I heard it was rather BIG. March 25, 2008 at 11:23 pm #604762 SanFrantastico 1514 PostsThis says it all… I’m glad the slide turned out okay. Be careful out there!!Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. March 26, 2008 at 3:03 am #604763 snoslut 178 Posts Oops. Here’s a pic of the slide that swept my ski buddy Eli. He pulled a whoodini in the trees and resurfaced midway down the slope. He opted to ski out in the runout. Barely visible are my tracks next to the runout. I didn’t turn to much after that. Eli breaking trail in some deep shit… Almost to our final destination literally… Hard to believe that its almost April… March 26, 2008 at 5:24 pm #604764 powderjunkie 1669 PostsMe likey.
