Loc: Mount Vernon
Trip: Mount Ann - The Path of Powder

Date: 1/2/2017

Trip Report:
I've noticed that there is a dearth of the fresh summit views on the site of late. That's to be expected, of course, given the season, but we do live in a remarkable neck of the woods with year-round peak-bagging opportunities. Take Mount Ann, for example. It is nothing much to look at in summer, not much more than a bump on the ridge south of the trail to Lake Ann and the Fisher Chimneys. In winter, however, it is transformed into a fine ski outing with great fall line descents and hard to match views of Mount Shuksan in its rime-encrusted splendor.

The crowds of summer disappear and you have the powder, views, and valley to yourselves......
































Gear Notes:
The full backcountry ski kit. No need for whippet or axe.

Approach Notes:
skis, naturally

If Gordo would've joined us, it just might have broken the internet!

Those certainly are some beautiful photos. I especially like the guy in full race position in the second to last photo. He is ready to GO.

I assume you left from the ski area?

I was skiing Kendall that day; as I recall it was pretty cold.

For sure, COLD! You'll notice the ice in Kit's beard....

Yep, we left from the Heather Meadows lot.

Scott, like Charlie Sheen, has one speed- GO!

Glad you liked the photos!
