April 8, 2001, Crystal Mountain, Washington
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Skinned from the base to the top of Northway Peak. Skied east facing aspects to the bottom of Green Valley with mostly good coverage and a bit heavier than ideal snow. Then skinned up to the summit house at Crystal Peak, over the top and down Lucky Shot again with good coverage but even heavier snow. Part of the group skied down the upper portion of Green Valley reporting their best skiing there and then out down Iceburg Gulch and Sunnyside where they reported low coverage and lots of rocks. North facing are probably the best aspects to ski in the area at this point.
