Skiing Hidden Peak, West Shore, Lake Tahoe

Today, Mark and I headed out Lake Tahoe’s West shore again and skinned up Hidden Peak for some more powder turns. While Sunday night’s snow was incredibly light and blower, we found that the warmer temps since we finished our tour up Jake’s had consolidated the new snow into the more creamy variety. The change was so dramatic that once I was into my second turn of the day, I found my skis tracking toward a 3′ thick pine; I was able to slow down, but, my backpack ended up having an intimate encounter with its trunk! Thankfully, it all came together and we enjoyed a few runs before the falling snow turned to rain.
