Vantage Point: From Microwave Tower

Caption: Harry and Beavis skiing towards the 1700' northeast face of Birkenhead Peak's Microwave Ridge.

PhotoDescr: Nice skiing on north facing chutes and gullies. Avi hazard was very good and we skiied some runs that I would normally not think about doing. Only problem was almost getting mowed down in the middle of the night in the tent by a full sized snowcat and wiping out with a full pack on the cat-chunked road on the way down.
