Nov 27, North Slope of Chair Peak

It was time for a real tour.  Phoned up the hardcore crew.  Conditions looked good!  Met up with Seth, Ian, Crispin, and Greg at the Alpy parking lot.  Crispin had talked to probably one of the few that actually had been up towards Chair Peak.  Recommended route of travel was Snow Lake trail to Source lake Overlook.  Skinned up into the Chair Peak Basin, then decided to climb up to the NE ridge and take a look at the backside.  North Slopes looked good!  Skied almost to the lake, then skinned back up.  With skin track in place dropped one more line off the backside.  Back to the front for more good turns, followed by a luge run down the Snow Lake trail.  Good day, lots of vertical.  I was pretty wiped by the time I got home.

Seth and Ian boot the final pitch to the ridge.
