Calder Posted May 2, 2009 Share Posted May 2, 2009 (edited) Trip: Dragontail/ Colchuck Glacier - Tripple Couloirs recon Date: 4/31/2009 Trip Report: Thurs evening I skinned and booted up to Colchuck Lake. The road is almost open all the way to the trailhead, you can get to within a couple of hundered yards or so. The lake is still frozen solid and there was a fair amount of new snow. The wind was nuking pretty good in places but it was sunny and beautifull at the col. A bunch of split boarders and skiers showed up. They all asked if I was the crazy bastard who booted it up. It was a pretty busy day up there, but the powder was pretty nice. alt='Dragontail_044.JPG'> One of these pics is a close up of the runnels. No ice! Gear Notes: Pepper Jack and Gallo Italian dry salame Approach Notes: The trail has a lot of bare spots. The guys who came up that morning said they wore tennies all the way to Colchuck Lake. The snow was still pretty firm on the way down in the afternoon. Edited May 2, 2009 by Calder Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
