Gorp, caught your post before you edited.  Why did they close early?  Avalanche hazard?

Yup.  I was one of the first 20 people up chair 2 when it opened.  It was like riding in a silky dream. biggrin.gif The chair was probaly only open for about 3 hours.

Odd...I have not heard Tom Shane on the radio recently.

This thing was spotted about 1000' up from the MFK road underneath Quartz Mountain. Shane must be a peakbagger.

Went up Alpental today.  Sweet stuff, though starting to get skied down.  Barely found a parking spot at 12:30.  10 minute waits at Chair 2.  Not bad, but surprising for a weekday.  Guess everybody else had the same idea. doof.gif  It will probably be nuts this weekend.  Heading up to Stevens where hopefully the backside will be less crowded.

This thing was spotted about 1000' up from the MFK road underneath Quartz Mountain. Shane must be a peakbagger.

Au Contraire, it has been established that Shane is a lake bagger, and indeed, was on a trip to Gem Lake and Rock Creek looking for diamonds.  The area is across from Price Mountain, which he always conspicuously avoided.  This is all from his friend Ann Twerp, with whom he had left a rather large note.  Unfortunately the only food he brought was 24 carats--not brilliant thinking in this case.  This might seem like alot, but he forgot to hang his pack and a rabbit got into it, which left him with only two carats--a snack in the rough if ever there was.  Still, the story will have a happy ending.  This lake bagger will be back in Puget Sound it is predicted late April or May, but not all of him at once.

But getting back off topic, are they gonna fix the Milk Creek bridge over the Suiattle River this summer? Quark always knows these things.

IAC coughed up some grantdough.   I'm keeping my fingers crossed!  What a place, Milk Creek!

Thanks to advocacy groups like WTA and their efforts, more NOVA funds are available for hiking trails.

I went to Crystal last Friday and it was excellent.  I broke the rachet buckle on my binding but I know I can fix that before the next week..  I hope we continue getting snow up there.

Supposedly they are expecting 2+ feet at the pass tonight...  Wow, it's looking like a late hiking season.  I'm glad my chants permits are going to be in August......
