Snow Valley Peak 5/14/16

Post by cefire » Sun May 15, 2016 9:51 pm

Hiked Snow Valley Peak on the east side of the lake. Took the TRT up from Spooner - trail was mostly snowfree with 50-100' patches only. Deepest we encountered was within 100' vertical of summit on the lee side of the ridge, about 24" deep at most.

Almost summer(ish) time :unibrow:

Did you take skis? Glissade?

Thanks for the update. :)

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Ooops, sorry I missed this - skis would have been more work than they were worth. Only 15' feet of glissade for this overenthusiastic hiker :)
