May 2006: CALIFORNIA!

After failed attempts at a mountain trip, Ryan and I headed to CA to find some sunshine and corn snow . . . all in all, it turned out to be a great week of seeing old friends, skiing some of my favorite runs, and checking out places I've always wanted to (like the Palisades glacier!).

The underhill couloirs . . . they skied great!! (photo: Ryan Hokanson)



The V-notch and U-notch . . . also skied great, and are Sierra classics I've wanted to ski for awhile! (photo: Ryan Hokanson)




Mt. Agassiz - yep, we skied this one too - the obvious line from the looker's left of the summit. (photo: Ryan Hokanson)
