The Setup

This is the 3rd "snow cache" winter trip to Yellow Aster Butte. We placed gear there in the fall, came in, dug it out, and had a comfortable 4 days of camping and skiing.

Stephen made a movie of the whole trip. It's long so I just provide a download link. Very professional. More photos of this trip in Stephen's gallery.

Previous trips were in 2003 (no cache) and 2007 (snow cache).

Ski In

First Day.

Second day

Due to the sun and warm weather all the south facing slopes were either mush or ice crust. Andrew and I climbed over the top to the north side while other's toured around the side. We found the snow on the north side was still excellent.

Ski Out
