Jan 1, 2011 Mt. Roosevelt

With perfect weather, and a good crew we charged out to Mt. Roosevelt.    Wind had effected certain aspects, but we found some pretty darn good skiing.  At the end of the day, Seth had 5,000 feet of vertical registered on his watch.   Definitely a full day, and a nice way to start the new year.  I have too many good pictures, but hard to not post them all.

Seth breaks trail - we tried to wear him out,
 by making him go first the entire day

Greg boots up the crux pitch to Mt. Roosevelt, with Snow Lake below

Mt. Rainier in the distance, as Greg makes
 the final traverse to the top

Seth skis off the summit


A little firm, where the wind blew.


Lot's of turns.


Greg, back in the sunshine

Seth enjoys the best snow of the day.
