Ski tour from the highway to the summit. Got started at a few minutes after 7:00 and we were back at th car around 5:00. The first mile or so had us in and out of skis but after that we were able to stay in skis the entire time.
Always a treat to backcountry ski in June! Wonderful corn descent.
Twice now - both in May, at least scrambled to the summit the second time ....
A beautiful little scramble. Incredibly scenic. An impressive summit platform with a unique perspective on Conness, the Meadows, and the Cathedral Range. I think this peak is worthy of more than just a nickname.
Skinned from the turnoff to Saddlebag Lake. Skied from the summit, then did another lap from farther north before the snow became too soft. Great place for corn skiing.
on a weekend away from the TML. Ragged, Ragged Ridged, False White, White, few sprinklings of others and Gaylor...
Sure looked 'white' to me... due to all the snow at the time. Up northeast from Spuller Lake. Descended southeast directly back to car at Tioga Lake so I could visit site of the Great Sierra Mine.
Great Sierra Mine was a major bust as you musta found out.
Yeah, but I wasn't expecting much... just curious.
Up the south slope from Gaylor Peak. A long day overall, first up Gaylor, over to here, and then White Mountain. Gaylor Lakes still mostly frozen over. Great views all day.
About 2 hours car-to-car, hauling ass.
Again in September '05
