Eastside splitting 4/28-4/30

Postby Beantown » Thu May 05, 2016 1:42 pm

My friend and I headed to the eastside for 3 days of splitting. We camped at Mcgee creek campground.

On 4/28 we went back to check out the wineglass, it didn't look great but we tried to find an easy crossing across the creek and couldn't find one so we gave up and headed toward baldwin mountain but we only rode a shoulder off some no-name mountain. The chutes in the cirque looked tasty. I'm heading back up to get them this weekend.

On 4/29 we went back into rock creek lake little lakes valley, all the way back to try and get to Pipsqueak Spire, but it was further and longer than we judged with lots of up and downs and when we came to the giant cirque we would have had to cross we just gave up. Still got lots of good turns in though. I dropped in from halfway up the cirque.

On 4/30 we decided to try and find something with easy access since the day before was a long one. We went to Virginia Lakes and scored with several inches of fresh pow and more up higher. There were Lots of "grumpy old men" ice fishing on virgina lake lol. Lots of other skiers and riders out that day, we were the first ones up the bowl and got 2 runs.
