Alpental, May 12, 2009

Time to return to winter. Hooked up with Greg Louie to sample a little of the fresh snow. Not bad to get new snow on May 12. Plan was to try a new line above the Powder Bowl area. Need to find the proper name. Anyhow Greg laid in this sweet skin track and we made it all the way to the ridge top without having to boot (approx. 5'400 ft.). We were considering a Southerly descent, but after Greg made the first ski cut and the top layer all slid, exposing more mush below, we reconsidered and dropped back down into Edelweiss basin, then cruised over to International. Poked out to Trash Can area via Boarder Poach for some enjoyable turns.
