Dunderberg, October 29, 2016
Some recent high level snowfall fueled the desire to make some turns on new snow. Dunderberg would be the location of a snow seeking recon mission. Since there was no snow at the first turnoff (Elevation 9,500 ft.)we headed further up the road. A big snowdrift at around the 10,000 ft. elevation meant we would have to hike up from there.

After about 40 minutes of hiking I made it to Jack's Lake.

I would ski back from near here.

The recon mission was a success. The snow that was found was even better than expected.
