“Since we got back to camp today I’ve been preoccupied getting tequila drunk and cooking dinner, and then I found out about Timy passing away, and I’ve been very bummed.”
Allegedly Tioga Pass opened yesterday to the pass around noon, based on one conversation with a random local.
Everything around us looked awesome in light of the new coverage. We summited Mt. Dana around noon:
There was a variable snowpack ranging from boilerplate to blower pow in Ellery Bowl.
I skied Dana Col for the first time and was treated to a transitioning snow pack from pow to corn, best summarized as ‘chalky snow.’
