Super fun skiing at White Pass, WA. 8” new May powder. With sunny skies, we decided to to ski a bonus lap at the end of the morning.

I couldn't find any takers for road laps at the Valley, so drove up to Ten Mile Station and toured up Lehman Gulch and the un-named service road up Peak 10 to take a run down Spitfire.

The snow was pretty heavy and settled by the time we got on it and you had to keep pointing downhill to keep going; not straight-lining, but no traversing at all. The exit out along the track we ascended on required some skintrack running with judicious speed control by making turns outside the track to slow down.

My impromptu snow stake. Almost 16 inches in town was matched by at least as much on the trails.

Thanks to whomever set the track.

A scenic pass through some trees.

Great stuff and stoke as we are now in summertime! Jealous of some you guys bagging these great spring lines. Well done!
I agree, great to see you guys out gettin' after it @Slim and @charlier! And, being that the days are now getting shorter, I'm going to start pulling out some pics from the archives. Here are a few shots from a lift assisted solo tour back on March 7th.

Currently, I am using relatively heavy touring skis and boots- mostly for training/suffering. Soon I will use my light weight volcano setup. More photos to follow.
