Feb. 25, Mt. Catherine

This has been the favorite tour this year, and it certainly delivered today.   Hooked up with Crispin, and after a Hyak run, we headed for Catherine.  With lots of fresh snow, and the Steven's pass tragedy fresh in everyone's mind, we found ourselves the only group headed for Mt. Catherine today.  The light snow made for easy touring, and we made quick work to the summit.  Enjoyed 1 lap to the cliff edge, then two through the cliffs.  By our third lap we were starting to set off several small avalanches, with about a one foot crown.  Great day.

Crispin breaks trail through virgin powder.

Keeping it at snorkel level.

Up for air!
