Hidden Lake Peaks touring - March 2005

With Jerry reporting good snow conditions the week prior, Andy, Eric, Jerry and I set out on a futile search for some good two-week old powder on Hidden Lake Peak's East Slopes. Instead of powder, we enjoyed a nice breakable crust and flat light on what was to be the money descent of the tour (pictured above). We did, however locate a short powder slope upon descent from the lookout. Speaking of the lookout - we would encounter local ski 'celebrities' Phil, Sky, Jason and Josh taking a nap in the lookout. I think they went on to ski something in the Triad area the following day.
