Working towards Wall St. 🙂 skier/TNT, photo credit/ Scott Sumner


I was getting ready to take a little low angle walk yesterday around 1PM, when I got a text from my bro, Scott Sumner. His text said that he was going to ski Alpental BC, which made me wonder where, as the high gate (Nash Gate) had been close all week. The patrol had it closed because of big slab avalanche potential, and it didn’t help that a massive slide was triggered last Sunday by a rider out of bounds which took him for a big ride and also put debris into the ski area, where a ski patrol member and dog were partially buried. Well, after check of the Summit’s website, the high gate was INDEED open!!! Today should be superb all across the Cascades!
