sun god ski descent

June 20, 2007

Mark and I climbed the north face of Sun God and had a fantastic run down. Unfortunately we didn't start early enough and spent too much time of the summit, the result of which was the closest call I've had in the mountians in some time. A chunck of cornice which had been in the sun for several hours broke off and whipped past us partway donw the face. Lesson learned, start early and move fast.

Mark on the bootpack. Approach was amazing,
a few minutes on logging road, a few minutes hiking, then snow!

Good corn on the final slopes!

 

More coastal skiing... more logging roads!
