Tour of the Corn

Rather and racing my road bike at the Tour of the Depot today, I convinced Adam, Kendall and Jason to join me for the Tour of the Corn.  Our objective was the huge natural half pipe on Lone Peak's south side.  We've all looked at it for years and today we skiied it.  We made good time to the ridge and enjoyed the long ski down.  The snow was a little firm on top, but really nice corn on the rest.  Here's a few pictures from the outing.

We spend some quality time on dirt.

The firm snow allowed skinning straight up.

Box Elder looming in the background.

It a big, open bowl with great views.

The fnal push to the ridge.

Jason enjoying lunch, twitter and the views.

Lots and lots of turns to be had on the way down.


Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning.

What a day. I'm ready to go back.

The approach was actually pretty easy. I've walked longer and through more junk to ski less inspiring and less vertical.

Definitely stoked to ski it next winter in pow. Put that on your list boys!
