June 16 - 17, 2001, Mt. Adams
WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)
The road is open to Cold Springs. The trail is snow free for the first mile. On Saturday the sun was out all day. I skied the Crescent Glacier with good corn conditions. Other skiers coming down from the summit reported icy conditions until about 1PM. So I timed my summit for 1PM. Unfortunately, a band of high clouds covered the mountain for most of the morning and the snow remained frozen above Lunch Counter. The ski down the Crescent Glacier was great again on Sunday.
