matier northeast ridge

June 18-19, 2005

Scott Nelson and I headed up to Cerise Creek for a late season ski trip. We were hoping to ski Matier's Northwest Face, but opted for the Northeast Ridge instead. the snow was pretty soft and there were loose snow avalanches running like crazy, but it was still a fun ski descent. I managed to ski it from the summit ridge, which was a bit exciting.
