Big Bo Peep and yours truly skied to the High Grade Mine in the Hatcher Pass area. Snowpack is thin, but adquate for the mellow grade terrain. First trip this season on the rugged touring set up after alpine touring the past several weeks.
A storm was brewing, portending a deeper snowpack.
Telemarking through Goldcord
On the way back, we happened upon friendly Fred. He showed us around the new A-frame cabin he and his wife have nearly completed above Goldcord, a beautiful place with propane heat, running water, and an exceptional view in all four directions.
