The Devils Bedstead in all its majesty
May showers bring Powder to the high peaks and we were able to experience some of this magic the other day here in the Pioneer Mountains, Idaho. A surprise visit from our old avalanche forecaster, a pro skier and a local doc coincided with Joe returning from the Hawaiian Islands and the Trail creek road having just opened. Recent cold temps and new snow led to great conditions on one of the most iconic ski peaks in Idaho. Thanks to Dylan Crossman for some of the great shots here, enjoy!
Clearing “the bush” on the approach
Trying to get a view through the white-out
Great booting conditions
Climbing in the white-out
Feeling the exposure high on the face
taking it all in
Climbing on the moon on the summit pitch
Nothing like being perched high on an alpine face
Terry topping out on the summit
loving the Coombacks and the view down the ski line
Can’t beat the conditions

the lower face
and back to boots for the walk out, stoked.
