Nisqually Chutes (MRNP) - Apr. 25

Sneaking-in one last post before Blogger cuts me off for good...

Taking advantage of the nice weather and unexpected late April powder, the Verdinas trudged up the Muir Snowfield for a run down the Nisqually Chutes. That's 3-strikes for yours truly but only a first-time offence for my accomplice. Conditions in the main chute were a mix of sun-affected powder, some thinly covered avalanche debris and surfy creamed corn. Notable highlights include painful sunburns for the both of us, and being harassed by Larry The Tool for allegedly endangering people's lives by riding down all the way to the parking lot. Cooler heads must have prevailed for nothing came of the incident after Larry stormed off to report our heinous crime to the "authorities."

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish


"Testing" my knee 1-week post injury at Snoqualmie Pass with Oz and Agata (behind the lens).

The calendar may say spring, but for the first few weeks of April we finally enjoyed winter again. A couple strong storms blew through our region bringing unseasonably cool temperatures and generous amounts of mountain snow. This seemed to re-energize the local ski population, bringing out the masses (myself included) for what would surely be the last dose of lift-served powder.

Meanwhile, as I recuperate from a partial MCL tear Google Blogger is threatening to discontinue their FTP service thereby crippling my ability to post updates to this blog. This may be my last post for a while, at least until I come up with an alternative.
