The Nipple, July 11, 2017

Blue Lakes Road is open! (11 miles in instead of 7 miles in.) Time to enjoy the snow with Makisha and Penny on a recon dusk patrol skiing mission on The Nipple.

Looking up after our third run. If you look closely, you can see my tracks up in the sunny area.

A successful recon mission. Since the snow was great and there were plenty of other lines to ski, I would return here the next two days making this Part I of the Three Consecutive Days at The Nipple Trilogy.
