Cayoosh Mountain, Northeast Face # 9512

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.01.02
Vantage Point: From the pass (2200m) SE of the Wendy Thompson Hut

Caption: Cayoosh Mountain as seen from the northeast

PhotoDescr: This photo was taken in 2005. We visited this pass on Feb 11, 2007, and skied the broad ridge down to the small lake (on the right of the photo). The ridge on the right side of the photo offers excellent skiing (200 m vertical) through trees and open slopes.

After a two-week period of rain, and freeze-thaw cycles, it appears that the snow is recovering. This weekend, these mountains received 10-15 cm of snow, which appears to be bonding well. Several small slides were seen on the SE-facing gullies (on the left of the photo, and below).
