Goldcord Peak

With the thermometer registering below zero Fahrenheit, rallying in the morning darkness of late November seemed too ambitious. As I contemplated the alternatives of staying in bed and warmly dozing in the darkness, or getting up and dressing in 3 or 4 layers for a subzero ski trip, the memory of deep snow at Hatcher Pass took hold of my consciousness.

Should we call the day after Thanksgiving, white Friday - a day to ski?

We made it to Goldcord Peak as a 6-man rally.  We skied incredibly good snow on the west aspect and the south aspect.
