January 5, 2002, Mazama Ridge, Rainier
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
Took a quick trip to Mazama Ridge. 1" of powder on top of a very firm base. Much better conditions that expected, as snow level was 5000-6000. Tracked up Mazama Ridge and Edith Creek for a bit. Foggy at the top of the ridge but nice skiing below. Backside bowl too foggy to ski (or see). I was on super fat skis, skinnier ones would've been the tool for the day.
