A large-ish group (Kevin, Ethan, Nick, Ian, Steffen, Aldo, Rok) assembled at the Mountaineers Lodge near the Mt. Baker ski area Friday night/Saturday morning. Some rode lifts on Saturday, but Ethan and I are cheap bastards so around noon we strapped on our planks and strode gleefully through the parking lot into the unknown... thankfully, we stumbled upon two friendly Bellinghammers Lewis and Abe who showed us around. We did three laps on Mt. Herman in insanely light powder - the last one well after sundown aided by an almost full moon. Yum.

Sunday some of us did the classic tour around Table mountain, but to make it worthwhile we spiced it up with some extra downhill sections. Cold temps preserved the juicy powder from the day before and we again returned by moonlight.

Monday we were joined by Jessica, as well as Lewis and Abe from Bellingham - the objective was a relatively mellow and uncommiting tour towards Coleman pinnacle, again augmented by extra descents on slopes that wouldn't take no for an answer. We topped the day off with a descent of the north side of table mountain and returned to the car marvelling in the moonrise above Shuksan.

All in all an absolutely stellar weekend of backcountry touring, which we concluded praying at the north fork beer shrine where Ethan and I wondered if we would ever stop eating. Eventually we ran out of pizza.

Hopefully the photographers will post some photos soon...............

Ethan should have some great shots soon as well!

The weather in short was amazing, cold and dry, with a clearing trend. The snow was about 6" fresh on a stabilizing snowpack. There were 3 moonrises, 2 sunsets, and one sunrise, a snowy day, a cloudy day, and a sunny day. We ended most tours by moonlight, with a full moon rising over the Nooksack Range, and all tours more or less began from the lodge, where much feasting was to be had.

The Mountaineers Lodge can be recommended for its beautiful setting at timberline at the end of the road, with great food, organization, and company. Light sleepers advised to bring earplugs. Also warning for staying multiple nights while it is stormy - sometimes it can be hard to find and excavate the cars when it is time to go!

Hola,
Here is my share of pictures from the same trip. Sorry if the page is in Italian... But I'm sure you'll be able to deal with it.

Incredible conditions we had... Very, very close to perfection. I can't believe I was undecided whether to join the trip!!!
