Reed and I made the long drive out to Sherman Pass, WA to ski the highpoint of the Kettle Mountains earlier this week. We went for the prominence (4740!!) but ended up getting in some good skiing as a bonus. We left early Monday morning and were skinning up FR 2030 around 10:30 am. We skinned the packed down road for 4 or 5 miles until we came to the pass between the North Fork of Sherman Creek and US Creek. From there we cut left into the forest and made an ascending traverse directly to the saddle between Scar Mountain and Copper Butte experiencing some minor brush in places. Once to the saddle, it was a pleasant skin to the breezy and cold summit. The east side of Copper is open slopes that provided us with some surprisingly fun turns. We hooked back up with FR 2030 about a mile and a half north from where we left it. We were back at the car around 7 for about 8.5 hours RT.
