Folger Peak, June 27, 2018

While skiing up at Dorothy Lake near Ebbetts Pass two days earlier we had a good view of the Folger Peak area. We noticed that the bowl below the looker's left ridge was still holding enough snow for a nice long run. I headed up with Makisha and Penny.

Penny loves the snow.

At the top of the patch I set up the camera for some self-timer photos.

After two runs from just below the top of the ridge we headed down following a stream that led to a skiable patch of snow below a little waterfall that brought us down to a quick five-minute walk back to the car.

It was nice to cool off and take a relatively long run for the end of June.
