    I've always loved this chair ride for the rising of Mt. Shuksan on a clear day (chair 3, Mt. Baker)...

    We have really lousy winter around here for now, so yes, please keep your fingers crossed for at least one or two nice dumps before flowers starts to bloom and I need to change my skis for mtb. But if you know where to looks, there's still few secret spots, where you can find some nice powder and few not so secret spots, where you can find some nice steep skiing on relatively ok snow :)

    Half of the quite boring climb is behind us.
    Now part of the climb with nicer view starts and top of the mountain in background is where we will end up the climb.
    Still some more climbing to do and it's getting hot.
    Lunch with the view :)
    And then some fun way below on not so public place :)

    Wow, wow, wow!!!! Seattleites see Tacoma (aka Rainier) 80 some days a year, how many days during a ski season does one sees Shuksan from Baker? Any guess about in March specifically? Thanks!

    Every day it's clear or there are high clouds you can see the stuff at Baker. Shuksan and Baker are only two of the many peaks visible. How many days? I don't have a decent guess. I've gone an entire season and not seen anything, and I've had other seasons where things are out fairly frequently. This season has been a good one for views, but there is no telling what tomorrow will bring.

    And, different than Crystal, you don't see Mt. Shuksan just from the top of the lift. It looks right down on you on about half of the ski area. Mt. Baker is harder to find since it's only visible from the top of Pan Dome.

    Nice day in 70cm of fresh powder, but there were a bit of tricky conditions avalanche vise. Now I guess I'm ready for two days of rain in Kranjska Gora men WC races :)

    Thanks so much for the tour! We spent much of the trip lapping all of the trees you showed us off 9. Fantastic terrain and snow!!

    I couldn't tell you exactly where we skied, but it was through Helitrax. Gorgeous day. Unfortunately, avy risk was too high to get into any interesting terrain. We spent the day tracking out low angle stuff. Thigh deep in most places.

    Some speed turns from last weekend. It was all fun until I came home and read skier triggered avalanche and died under it just some 500m more south on the opposite hill pretty much exactly at the same time friend took this photo of me.

    Engelberg went from a level 2 to 5 during our trip.
    Lines we skied early in the week slid before the trip was over.

    @Catskill carver thing is, last weekend was sketchy... damn sketchy around here, and you needed to play really really defensive if you wanted to stay safe. Even though avi reports were on level 2 to 3 "only" in south Austria where I went to ski, there was some 30cm fresh snow day before, but with wind anywhere from 50 to 100km/h. Basically anything from North east to North West was out of question, especially where this photo was done (around 2500m high). Yet some people were pushing luck on 40+ degrees north facing slopes.
    Just in this area where I have been skiing on Saturday, there was 5 big slides in two days... 3 triggered by skiers (16 years old girl miraculously survived after she was buried 2m deep, 1 was not buried at all, and previously mentioned guy was found too late and unfortunately died), and 2 spontaneous. But all 5 slides were on north facing steep faces.

    First time I have seen San Jacinto Peak. (Earlier today). Wow. The scale is off the charts. I am at about 1200 feet taking the photo from SR 111 and the peak rises above 11,800 feet. Do the math! The only more impressive mountain face I have seen is the Eiger's north face in Switzerland. But San Jacinto has the largest contrast in ecosystems wow. Just wow.
