Last week, the North Cascades got hammered with snowfall. Reports varied, but most tallies showed about nine feet of snow in seven days in the northern part of the range. I was out of town, so I had to live vicariously through friends as they slayed the freshies.
There was a lull in the storm cycle today and since tomorrow marks the beginning of my winter work season I thought it prudent to sneak in a few turns with some friends. We poked around in the backcountry near the Mount Baker Ski Area and probably only skied about 3000′ vert, but it was a beaut!
