TAY 34.2 (2020.74) - Shredding the Source Lake Glacier
If you're the kind of TAYer that believes August turns should only count if they include a sufficiently high ratio of shenanigans to turns, then this is the beta you've been looking for! The Source Lake Glacier still goes! And for that matter, as far as I could tell, so does Pineapple Pass... but that's for another day of tomfoolery.
Hiked in from Snow Lake TH, tried and failed to get up high into the Chair Peak/Thumbtack basin, because I don't know the route and it was getting late. So I headed back down to the glorious Source Lake Glacier which still offers (slightly) more than 100ft of slidable snow to shred!
My recent skiing has been way to easy... it was refreshing to have some true shenanigans!
100ft of slidable snow on the Source Lake Glacier
Only 10 laps for you bozos that insist on 1000ft of vert!
Me topping out and getting lost
I tried to make it to Thumbtack Basin, but apparently I don't know the route in the summer!
Perfect conditions dropping in at 3pm
Pineapple Pass still goes!
Go get it!
Upper International Still Goes!
I'm telling you, that's snow at the top of Upper International on August 5th... Go get it!
