I made two early season trip reports and then forgot to make anymore, mainly because I broke my phone and didn’t take pictures quite a few days. Anywho, here are some selected pictures from the days I did take pictures! Always weird when the skiing is way better in November than December...

Dec 5 - yodelin and companion rescue. Not great skiing but great skills practice!

Thanks for the pleasing potpourri of powder pix.

In 2019, late October had better snow than November or December.  On Oct 28 we skinned from Stevens Lot C with over 2 feet of fresh! (no base)


Boy do I remember. Had five glorious daysup at mission ridge between end of September and beginning of October 2019.
