Write Up:
Four skiers and one boarder were on this trip. Route finding via logging roads and lower treed slopes, starting from the Callahan Valley road parking area, was fairly straightforward but the GPS helped. We made it to 1700 m (300m below the summit) before turning around at 2 pm. The area above tree line offered nice skiing, but unfortunately visibility was limited due to fog; we did catch some glimpses of the upper ridges when the fog parted briefly. We saw one other party, but the numerous tracks from the weekend attested to the popularity of the route. An enjoyable trip but next time we would get a bit earlier start and try for better weather.
