Hiland Road

Kruser, Dr. Snow & yours truly tracked up Rendezvous with 250 of our best powder-seeking buddies. It was a good day at Arctic Valley with exqusisite, smokey untracked powder. After riding Markman's lifts for 20,000 ft verts and then finding no untracked 50-turn lines, Doc and No-Tracks Jack embarked on a Hiland Road adventure.

We exited the ski area at the saddle between Mt. Gordon Lyon and Rendezvous and skinned up Gordon Lyon, then skied down toward Hiland Road. The descent toward Hiland is not recommended due to avalanche hazard.

Doc found a nice line.

We played, then paid. The price of climbing back up toward home was well worth the prize.

Nice to see you boys are making some good turns - careful with the avi stuff...
