mount frosty east slide path

Stephen and I checked out the eastern slide path on Mount Frosty.

Crossing Lightning Lake towards Mount Frosty.
The slide path we skied is directly above Stephen in the photo.

 

Uh Oh, not quite enough snowpack for a good ski track.

 

How's the bootpacking?

 

Skinning in the pleasant Larch forest.

 

Views back to Lightning Lakes.

 

Heading up the ridge into the alpine.

 

View of Frosty's true summit.

 

Stephen enjoys some nice snow at the top of the slide path.

 

Stephen and Matt. It was cold!

 

Matt gets some fun turns.

 

The path quickly became heavily treed. The lower section wasn't great skiing.

 

Crossing the lake by after nightfall.
