Bullet-proof snow somewhat lessened the fun factor on the ascent, but this still was an amazing spring day!

Super windy, which made an ascent with a snowboard on my back rather difficult. But made it none the less, and got some fun late season turns in.

Terribly soft snow. Couldn't even glissade. But I was on continuous snow to the summit and enjoyed that. Not too exciting but a decent climb.

It was an ok climb. Not terribly exciting. But great to get your experience. One of the best glissades I have done.

An ok route. Not really a couloir IMO but it was an ok snow climb. An AWESOME glissade though!!
Great place for a first snow climb.

Shavano was a great training trip for Rainier the following weekend. Snowshoed up, and got lots of snow in my pants on the glissade down. Good times with good friends.

Great first snow climb. Perfect for getting comfortable with crampons. Not to mention the glissade was great!

chicagotransplantSki Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2007


Climbed and skied this route with a group of 4 others from this site. There was just enough morning snow to start to soften everything up as we began our descent. Skied from the top of the head all the way to about 10,500' before snow became to patchy and we had to walk the rest of the trail. Glissading is fun, but skiing is better!
