Trip: Mt. Baker backcountry - Table Mountain circumnavigation

Trip Date: 03/08/2020

Trip Report:

 

Made it into the Mt. Baker zone for the first time yesterday with my buddy John. The lure of 50 cm of fresh on Thursday and a surprise 20 cm Saturday night from that sneaker storm was enough to pull us all the way up there... and we were rewarded! Not sure the setting and views get much better. Had a great ski clockwise around Table Mountain in a brilliant theater of wet loose avalanche activity - the was certainly more sun than originally forecasted. Great snow conditions, even if a little baked by the mid-afternoon. A great outing, and even made it back to Seattle for sunset!

 

 

This is a fools spring - winter ain’t done with us yet!
 

Also saw a rather handsome 2ish pitch ice line directly east of Iceberg Lake... wondering if anyone has climbed it recently as it certainly looks pretty tasty at the moment. See pics below...
