^^First hand details will be made available to all participants this evening but here is a look at what went down, literally, on Mount Ralston on Sunday. Check out those tracks. Mine are the ones on the right, thankfully not split by the 2' avalanche crown. The slab broke loose while my buddy was smack dab in the middle of the cliff band. He was engulfed and rolled right over the rocks, yet somehow escaped unscathed and only partially buried.
The Pollywood trails are still under snow but is seems time to return to the Tuesday taco tradition after last week's steeps. Hopefully the call out for this week will get some more flesh soon but there is a strong groundswell to return to the Knott on the usual time schedule and to do so after sliding around on the snow up there.
I have a few extra pairs of XC skis and boots that are up for grabs. I also have some snowshoes. I'm sure we can find some low angle terrain to scoot about on before going for tacos as usual, perhaps we can do a lake loop or variation thereof.
I'm sure that any lack of snow gear can be overcome, so please post your needs. If you will be attending with your own snow tools share that too please.
