Gash Point

Today was an amazing day of skiing. My buddy Shane and I headed to Gash Point south of town about an hour away. Rumor around town was that the snow was great so we thought we'd check it out. The approach is about a 4,000 ft skin to the top where we indeed found great snow. We found the snow pack to be awesome after some analysis and made our first run. The turns were great and after 500 ft vertical we were at the base of the northern bowl. It was too good to call it quits then so we headed back up for our final run. This time we dropped into the southern bowl and made amazing turns in shin deep powder for 4,000 ft back to the car.
