Looking towards Mt. Catherine aka Hyak bc 🙂

With all of the snow that fell from the massive Snowmageddon 2018, along with the Colorado type, super cold temps, I thought a trip into the trees were necessary. I rode the East Peak Chair Lift for a bump start (Sun, 2/24/19), then skied down Milwaukee Ridge to connect with the criss cross network. Hitting Union Station, for an easy crossing over Mill Creek (which can be tough at times). I climb up under the North Face in the lower trees, doing a little yo-yo skiing, with a finish in the lower bowl (you see from the Hidden Valley Chair). Punched out through the young growth and found a crossing made easier by two others – an hour or so earlier. Thanks for finding the easy way, guys!
