Bare bones. Learned how to ski ON manzanitas. Good views though, and considering our options, it was very worthwhile. The snow was breakable crust on sugar snow...probably the hardest conditions to skin on.
Yeah...not much snow. Start praying folks.
High bushes...Nick really wanted to turn around...but being the stubborn one, I didn't let him.
With such nice views of the lake, how can you turn around?
Getting ready to eat lunch.
The skinning was tough, so we had to boot up at points.
A view of the summit. Look at Central and S couloirs...unbelievable.
A view back towards Dick's...our wishful destination.
Nice terrain off of Kalmia Ridge... who wants to head back there? Anyone game?
