1.5 miles of hiking • 1250' elevation gain •

After a week of Rain and hearing that Summit West had closed down for the season.... I went to bed Friday night dreaming of fresh snow and my prayers were answered. When I checked the web cams it was snowing and forecasted to stay cool throughout the morning. I quickly gathered my gear and off I went. I took my dog Mindy with me and we had blast. 6" of fresh snow to explore and the best part was nobody else was up there yet. I got first tracks on a couple of runs and by 11:00am the sun started to poke out. It felt great, but the snow got cooked fast and everything got schmooooooy !!! Ohh well, take it when you can get it. Felt great to be out touring again. Bring on some the spring ski season !!!
