Today I met up with five other Seattle Mountain Rescue folks at Snoqualmie Pass for some backcountry skiing and avalanche rescue refresher training. It was one of those remarkable winter days that doesn't come often to the cascades: fresh powder, blue skies, and a stable snow pack. Our ski tour took us up to the base of Chair Peak and then down rolling slopes to Snow Lake where we looped back to Alpental Valley. What a great tour!
