Silver loop  Sucess!

Quick loop hike around silver and its slight lower (but more interesting) neighbor. some fun scrambling and a crazy shoe-skiing descent.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Took the snow-packed road from 89 until I was below the East Bowl of Silver, then climbed up to the ridge and followed it to the summit. Skied the bowl on pretty good snow.

Silver Peak  Sucess!

Hiked up the road about 1 mile north of Silver Creek campground. Snowshoes or just boots the whole way- packed snow made it easy. Great views of Squaw Valley.

Traversed from Peak 8506. It was a difficult traverse with a lot of ups and downs.

This is in my backyard, and is a fun way to spend the day.

Route Climbed: West Face Date Climbed: March 31, 2007  Sucess!

From Squaw Valley. Bagged Peak 8426, then headed over to Silver Peak via the saddle connecting the two. Brought snow shoes but didn't end up using them.

Silver Peak (NW Tahoe)  Sucess!

Figured this would be an easy peak to do to get away from it all. Did the peak on some crappy and old wooden snowshoes that I borrowed from my boss for kicks.
The round trip from the Olympic Village Inn took about two and half hours. You might want to think about adding an extra 30-45 minutes and climbing Peak 8,426 as well. The only surprising thing was the price that Squaw Valley Starbucks was charging for their small coffee $1.98.
