Sweet snow!  Sucess!

Dropped the east face (scary cornice!) and stayed in Castle Valley. Took the trail by storm on ski's (bobsledding anyone?) and made it to the car in 5 minutes flat after tagging and dropping Castle and Basin. Helluva day.

Seeing the ridge  Sucess!

I took the Hole in the Ground Trail to get to the summit. On the way back, I explored some of the rock outcroppings at the south edge of the ridge. I put up a page for the Hole in the Ground Trail.

First time on snowshoes  Sucess!

Tried out my snowshoes that I got for xmas for the first time. It went great, I made it to the summit in about 1 hour from the trailhead. Lots of people on the trail. I had the summit to myself except for two snowmobilers who arrived just as I left.

Snowshoe outing  Sucess!

Climbed Castle, Basin, and Andesite with Bob. This is a very short diversion from Castle Pass, but there's an outstanding view of Castle Peak from the summit.

Snowshoe Trip  Sucess!

Wife and I tagged the top by climbing the ridge from Castle Pass. No tracks so we made our own in knee to thigh deep powder. Perfect day. Sunny, no clouds, light breeze, upper 30's to low 40's.
