July 2nd, and Main Chute is still in!

Paul joined me for this morning’s outing.  The goal was to find some decent snow and ski something more interesting than “Gunsight”.  I thought that Main Chute on Baldy might still go, so we decided to check it out.  We had to walk a little bit here and there and shimmy over some dirt, grass, and rocks before reaching the Baldy apron.  After that it was up to the mouth of the chute and a quick boot to the top.  As you’ll see, the chute was in incredible shape for July.  I’ve never skied it this late in the season.  We also ran into some other guys up there, also getting their July turns in.

Some of the photos below were taken by Paul V.

Chute looks good. Time to get it did.

  1. glad to see _someone_ telemark skiing. nice touch on the hat bra, ps: looks like you’re wearing a hockey jersey or something.

    • Well, I’d be more than happy to break out the telemark gear Friday or Saturday if you wanna go check out Devil’s Castle… Don’t criticize. You were on a boat.
