Who's Out There? Doing What?

Jan 30 2011 Backcountry Ski Tour

Trip date: 01/30/2011
Reported by: Eric Ryan

We had a very enjoyable ski tour in the St. Regis Basin on January 30th.  Lots of fresh powder and great skiing.  We toured up to St. Regis pass behind Lookout Pass ski area, and then proceeded along the ridge above the St. Regis basin. Trail breaking was a bit heavy at times, but well worth the effort.  We skiied an East facing tree run into the basin, then proceeced to climb the opposite side of the basin, known as "the fairways."  We did a couple of runs here and then headed for home.  We were going to try to drop into Copper lake, but weather and time were against us.  We had to save it for next time (See the report for Groundhogs day 2011).
