Sarah, Sarah, Paul, Justin, Jeff and I headed up to Steep Creek on the Duffey Lake Road to enjoy some great skiing during a period of sunny weather and low avalanche hazard. Lots of skiing for little slogging, a little bit different than some of my trips.

Paul B enjoying some magic hour turns at Steep Creek. This photo was taken while skiing down the west facing gullies on the Peak northeast of Peak 2318. A rather enjoyable descent.
Sarah on the way up to Steep Peak. We skied off the peak in the back with the avy pathes the previous evening.
