Associated trip reports:  "With the road to Sunrise opening Friday, June 28th, "Mad Dog" Morrison and I, we had it to do. The year before the late winter storms had scoured all the snow out of the north facing chutes and bowls along Sourdough Ridge and Burroughs Mountain leaving local skiers nothing to ski when the road opened.
   ΚΚ Now, with people coming from near and far to ski some of our favorite summer stashes the next weekend we had to take one for the team and find out where Mother Nature left the goods this year. Beginning on Saturday, June 29, the forecast was for rain (didn't happen until the drive home) and the road was an hour late opening due to a mudslide, thus we were the sole skiers. We started at the east end of the ridge at Dege Peak and started working our way west along the ridge, skiing every line that still had enough snow for old people to ski. We continued the process on Sunday, skiing several chutes and circs along the ridge and climbing the 700 vf 40 - 50 degree chute we call "Fear Factor" but opting to postpone skiing it due to low visibility in the fog.
   ΚΚ Saturday, July 6 we met Andy, Regine and three other skier friends of theirs for breakfast at Buzzy's in Greenwater, to contemplate the day's gliss opportunities. Tim Place from Bellingham joined us at Sunrise. Heading for the Ridge, we knocked out Fear Factor and some other lines and then headed for the saddle between Burroughs 2 and 3 to nail the "Courage Classic", an 800 vf 40 degree line with a rocky gate in the middle.
   ΚΚ Sunday morning we found ourselves back at Buzzy's facing a whole new crew including Dana Dorsett from the east coast, Robie, our Matriarch, Dorothea Driggers, and Bob Nitzginger. At Sunrise more joined us, including the infamous Turns All Year Charles Eldridge and his sidekick Pete (see his TR for Sunday), Tim Place (animal - he spent the night there) and catching up with us before we bottomed out on the first run was Dave Wefferling from Lopez Island. We did Antler 1 and Fear Factor again (Dave poached an extra line closer to Antler while the rest of us climbed up). Then Charles, Dave and Pete headed for the Courage Classic on Bourroughs while the rest of us yoyo'd on Sourdough 1 and 2. And a Great Time was had by all. And so ends the 2002 Chutefest. Pics are available for your perusal here.. See you all there next year."

  "Pete and I met 7 others at Sunrise for a day of skiing easy access north-facing chutes. Rainier's summit kept a cloud cap all day, and there were a few rain showers in the morning, but the day was otherwise dry and the sun's warmth came through enough to soften the snow nicely. Our group grew by one as we were joined by Dave from Lopez Island at the bottom of the first run. We all did 3 short chute runs from the ridge above Sunrise (fairly smooth where steep), then Pete, Dave and I hiked the trail out over 1st Burroughs and partly up 2nd to the top of a nice run which dropped into Berkeley Park. Some of the group had skied this steep, 800' run the day before and said it should be nice, and it was. Smoothest snow of the day, softened just right, straight down the fall line with just one rock to avoid in a narrow part about half way down. This was the first skiable north-facing chute off 2nd Burroughs, but there were at least a couple more father along to the west. We hiked back to Frozen Lake saddle, then climbed a few hundred feet up 1st Burroughs to get in one more run, which took us back to within 3/4 mile of the parking lot. On the drive back, it started raining near the Park boundary and continued the entire way back to Seattle, where it had apparently been raining most of the day."
