A good Day for a Short tour

Dan on Red Pine Lake
The fun starts as we get to Red Pine Lake. Dan was a little hesitant to cross the lake, (He had previously fallen through ice).

Booting the Headwall
We had tried to skin the entire headwall, however it turned out to be easier to just boot it.

The Crux
Dan gaining the ridge through the cornice.

Looking toward the Pfeif
Finally we got a good look at the Pfeifferhorn, a beutiful peak in the winter.

The intended ski line
A good look at our intended ski line.

Traversing the Ridge
Crossing the usual Knife Edge Ridge was fun, a little scrambling in ski boots always adds to the experience.

The last bit
Here's Dan as he negotiates the final bit of the ridge, to the shoulder.

Entrance to the decent
Looking down the entrance, we can see that there is a boot track both up and down, glad to be on skis for this part.

Dan about to ski the line
Dan at the entrance, it was a bit winded here, made for a few scary turns above the rocks.

Fun Turns
And finally the reward....Nice turns Dan
