The Aspect Game

Yours truly played the aspect game at Arctic Valley. Searching for good snow was finally fruitful, but it took some time. If at first you don't succeed, ...

Arctic Valley slopes with any hint of a southerly aspect were crustified, and the north facing slopes of Gordon Lyon were windswept.

Rendezvous looked sweet in the swale about 1/3 of the way down from the summit. But, the ski club prefers people not skin to that area because it's within their ski area.

So, to the south end of the ski area I went.

Will the gap in the alders go through?

Yet, a narrower gap

Just wide enough.

Ash is about 3" below the surface.
