The Nipple, July 12, 2017 (Part II of the Three Consecutive Days at The Nipple Trilogy)

Yesterday, The Nipple, July 11, 2017 (Part I of the Three Consecutive Days at The Nipple Trilogy), the skiing was so good, and since more looked so good, I returned for more time on the snow with Makisha and Penny.

Looking up at the East Ridge of The Nipple.

On the approach I saw a second set of tracks next to mine from yesterday. I took this photo from nearly the same angle as yesterday evening.

Penny and Makisha below The Nipple. This photo is at a similar angle as the one I took the previous evening.

Here is a four minute long edit of our second run.

Since the snow was still great and there were plenty of other lines to ski, I would return here the next day.
