Forestdale Patches, July 9, 2017

When I did a recon mission on some of the Forestdale Patches on June 30th I noticed that there were many other patches available to ski. So I returned with my friend MJ to explore some more. We were able to park in the first little lot above Forestdale Creek and then we headed up between the Left Patch and the Left of the Left Patch. When we reached the top we saw that the backside of Forestdale Divide was still holding a lot of snow.

A fantastic day. Since there are many more patches to ski up at Forestdale Divide, future return trips are certain.
