Hatch led and I followed up this route on Eichorn Pinnacle.

It was nice to be on a big granite feature again, our timing was perfect and we reveled in the purple drink that is high altitude sunset.

As there was a fair amount of off-width wiggling I left my camera safely on the ground.

After some dome climbs the next day we hit the Travertine hot springs and caught another an amazing sunset!

Wo-hoo east side ridin

We had a great group of awesome skiers.

The snowmachine did it’s thing and got us right to the goods.

Proper nutrition was observed.

the chock-stone air was found and initiated

fat pow was slayed

 

 

Day something-rather in the Ruby’s was excellent storm skiing.  An elevation dependent storm hit, so it was raining in the parking lot and piling-up, high. The forecast called for 1-3″ but we ran into the local meteorologist whilst dropping rad lines the day before and he told us it would be close to 18″ in some areas.

He was right and we scored.

We toured in a new zone, exploring in a storm is always a bit nerve-wracking because of  unknown terrain factors.

We successfully mitigated the dangers and skied excellent terrain in flat-ish light.

Super fun!
