Day two of yurt trip. Epic day. Skiied the toughest shot I've ever attempted, an avalanche chute off of White Pine Knob into the White Pine drainage. Snow conditions were safe, but I was more concerned about cliffs and rocks. We all made it down, although I had my share of spills, but nothing life threatning. When I looked back up at it, I thought it was pretty stupid to ski that, but what's done is done.
Home sweet yurt
Twin peaks, Mt Gog and Magog
That's what we skiied down...what was I thinking?!
After that we toured up the White Pine drainage and summitted a ridge that we fondly called "Mt Crustmore", because it ended up be very icy and almost impossible to skin up. It took hours to get everyone up it, and by the time we all made it, it was time to turn around and go back to the yurt because of darkness. Half our group, including myself, did a shot on the face called "Magic Land" which was the destination of the horrendous uptrack. Magic Land was quite magical, and I finally got some good turns in the trees. We then uptracked and skidded down Mt Crustmore and reached the bottom by dark. We then hiked back to the yurt the dark. Very cold.
