This past week was the birthday of a super cool, all around solid guy, that happens to slay big mountains for lunch, and huge traverses for dinner. That guy is Jeff Rich, a Stevens Pass loc, that I’m so happy to call a good friend! This past Tuesday (3/24/15) Jeff headed down to Crystal, where he connected with Tara & Carl Simpson, along with a grip of others, including local Alpentalic, Greg Ireton. We had tossed around leaving the pass, to connect with everyone, but with the low snow level we stayed home to ski Snoqualmie Pass, but Carl’s vid makes me wish I’d taken the 5hr (RT) drive. Happy Birthday Jeff!!
Below is s short recap of their epic “closed” day at Crystal Mountain Resort (crystal is NOW open thru Sunday).
