Snow conditions were excellent. With the avy danger rating of considerable we stayed off exposed faces and skied mostly low consequence stuff and trees. This was my first time touring around Monarch Pass, and it was fun! I was even able to bag a free 12er in the process. Mt Peck, 12,208′ is a fairly easy trip from the pass. Here are the pics. Killclimbz and his dog Cody Killclimbz testing the air a little photoshop fun Cody enjoying the powder day! IridePow and spthomson getting ready to drop in off the summit of Mt Peck IridePow, riding pow in pecker wood All in all, a GREAT day. Snow was deep and pretty soft. We ended up making four runs around Monarch Ridge and Mt Peck. It was great to meet and ride with you guys, look forward to future trips. But probably not at Monarch Pass, the drive is way too far for frontrangers, I WOULDNT RECOMMEND IT! 😈 February 26, 2007 at 6:45 pm #594537 Killclimbz 1165 PostsYeah it sucked.
