July 6, 2002, Heliotrope/Marmot Ridge, Mt. Baker
WA Cascades West Slopes North (Mt Baker)
Excellent corn from 7000' to 5500'. Getting a little cupped and runneled below this, but still great for such low elevation! Last new snow-fall has Heliotrope looking perfect! Dropped in the direction of the parking lot via Marmot Ridge. Skied to near 4500'. More light bushwacking and forest travel near Grouse Cr. than last trip, best to take the trail now....A couple crevasses opening up on Heliotrope....Not many posts lately, Keep Skiing!!! T.
