I thought about going up to Mt Baldy this coming Sunday, but after looking at the weather report I'm going to pass.

I did make it to the top on Sun, Mar 6. It was sunny when I started. While on the summit the clouds were just beginning to roll in. It was really windy at the top as usual, I'm guessing 25-30 mph gusts. I started to descend and shortly after the summit disappeared behind clouds.

I may knock around Icehouse Canyon Sunday. If it's not too bad maybe Timber? We'll see.

Should be real nice. Not much on the ground before Icehouse Saddle at the moment, so I figure whatever is falling while you're up there is all you'll really have to deal with.


It's all coming down Sunday PM, gotta love the winds too. :D

Didn't make it out. Mama kept me up til 1:30 Sunday morning so an early start was out of the question. Think I'll pack Friday night so I don't get lazy Saturday so I can play Sunday. Want to get back out before it melts out.

What's Mt High snow got to do with Baldy? I can attest that Baldy got a foot by Sunday afternoon....apparently you can ski down to the parking lot today!

Baldy was beautiful again on Sunday. Unfortuntely, recent rains gave the off piste a good crust in most areas, but we found some sugary stuff down off Baby Stockton and South Bowl side. Lotsa, lotsa huge pinwheels back there! Conditions set-up pretty nicely for some avies this week. Telegraph looks like a death trap right now!

bring sunscreen

And bring sunscreen.


uh...YEP! Blair and I ran into pinwheels the size of tractor tires! And of course LOTSA debris from point release slides from an assortment of slopes, all over 30 degrees.

damn elusive sunscreen
