Shuksan Sulphide Gamble
Made a gamble with the weather and lost. Attempted a casual two day ski ascent/descent of Shuksan via the sulphide glacier route. Hoped to hustle through scattered showers on Saturday for a glorious Sunday. Starting out rain was more consistent than expected, but spirits were high and we prepared for some precip. A few miles in we moved through some denser trees that felt like skinning through a car wash. We all came out drenched and rain was not letting up. We realized that this was going to be less fun than anticipated and the forecasted night in the teens was something to worry about given how wet we were. Decided to bail halfway from TH to camp. Had a few fun turns back on some slushy snow and drove out to glorious sun and beers in Sedro.
Snows blocking the road about half a mile from the trail head. Consistent snow to skin about a mile in. Someone got in before us and hope they had a dryer time than us.
