Powder, Powder, Powder and Finding Bouldering at Just the Wrong Time


Saturday we skied 2000 feet of stellar powder from the summit of point 7795 down to 5800 feet on the south facing slopes above Lake Como (map). Below that we had the remarkable good fortune to discover a field of talus, chock full of boulders ranging from stumbleable to climbable size where we had only expected to find a steep hike back to the trail.

The skiing in the upper section was excellent and we will return to the area with more snow cover or crash pads but cannot recommend exploring the talus field with skis on ones back as the light fades.



The hike and skin up was mostly quite nice.





We spotted several steep featured faces on the way out but had the wrong tools for the job.
