Hi,

I've had my eye on this for too long now. I'd like to do a summit to parking lot ski in one day (hopefully without too much road walking). This is a fairly ambitious objective for a one day ski (at least for myself), but if anyone is also wanting to give it a try, let me know! We are looking at about 22 miles round-trip and 6500' of gain. I plan to camp at the trailhead and get started before dawn (3am). It will include 4 miles road, 5 miles trail, 0.75 miles(?) of frozen lake, and a mile of steepish snow (equivalent to an intermediate/advanced run).

The route goes between Dragontail and Colchuck here:

this thing is only 14 miles in the summer? no wonder I hate hiking that road.

Jesse, the secret to road walking is just to start at 3am when you're still half asleep. I plan to fully wake up somewhere around Colchuck lake. Sleep deprivation really speeds up the selective trip-amnesia. :wink:

Please take photos of TC (especially the runnels) and the NE Couloir on Dragontail and the NE Couloir on Colchuck. Thanks and have fun.

Jim, will do! As you know, that's largely why I'm interested in that area right now. I don't think that I can see the NE couloir on Dragontail from Colchuck Lake though. Someone would probably need to go up Asgaard pass for that one. Let's hope for good visibility now.... I'm so excited to head out there tonight!

Ian,
Nathan, myself and maybe Doug are heading up tonight for a 3 am start tomorrow morning. The goal is to summit by 1pm and be back, or near to, the car by dark on Saturday. It would be great if you could come too. I'm hoping to put all of that trail-skiing practice to use for a quick descent (MUCH better sounding than all of those long, dark nights hiking out!). Give me a call if you want to go.
