TAY 34.3 (2020.75) - Birthday Turns for Blake! (Thumbtack Basin)
Made it up to Thumbtack Basin this time for some birthday turns for Blake. I brought up a birthday “summit” treat for him like Westy did for me last year. Pay it forward to the SkiMo/TAY friends.
Thanks to KellyC for giving me the proper beta on how to get to Thumbtack Basin in the summer. Headline, there's actually a trail if you stick to the snow lake "loop" and then head northwest at 4265ft.
It's not SkiMo without some talus field travel!
Got to use our skins even!
The pass over to Cache Couloir
This looks a lot steeper without snow.
A legit amount of snow for turns!
Much more snow than the receding Source Lake Glacier!
Blake enjoying his "Summit" Birthday cake!
There was even a candle!
Oh yeah, and the famous gear cache!
Always wondered where this was... now I know.
