5000 foot skin job

My creamy turns near the end



Ken put out the call last night for a shortly after dawn patrol and Rob and I answered. The protected snow of Porter Fork was our destination. The snow was absolutely excellent on the North through East faces. We did a glade run off of Raymond, skinned back up and hit a nice deep sheltered chute off of Gobblers and rode the drainage all the way back to Porter. About 5k vertical of earned powder turns. My kind of base miles.
