Pete had been in the area a few days ago and suggested we ski a face off of Scarp’s Ridge. I knew the face he was talking about from other trips to the area, and it had always looked like a good one so that’s what we were aiming for. It was pretty steep and it rolled over, so it was hard to tell if we were in the right spot or not, but we gave it a go regardless. I dropped in first:
This tour covered a lot of miles over nine hours. For Brittany, it was a tune-up for the upcoming 14er season. For the rest of us, it was just fun.
