Skiing and Tunneling

I spent Saturday skiing with Sean and Sara off the East Portal trailhead. I'd never skied this particular area before, and found the terrain to be extremely featured and fun! Cliff bands of varying sizes were everywhere, and there was ample powder to land in.


In the Spring (only a few months from now) this gnar will become skiable!

This line was really fun

Sara took a break on the second lap, and when Sean and I returned, she had mostly completed a tunnel, linking a large pit to a tree well. We proceeded to help her finish the tunnel before taking turns going back and forth like hamsters in a new cage toy.



Some skiers came by and falsely accused us of being architects. We were happy to correct them as we are, in fact, civil engineers.
