Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Description

Lapping the Mark's Ghost area means doing all the variations, conditions permitting, of course. Don't miss this one. I really love this area.

Again, from the top of the run, it doesn't look like there's any good skiing, because trees are in the way. Just ski down through the trees to see the terrain open up. Regardless, the trees are reasonably spaced for some good tree-skiing anyway.

Looking up near the bottom of Mark's Ghost West.  There are open pitches of snow up above the trees.

Black's Peak with some great skiing north of it, south, and right down the middle.

Here you can see Black's Peak and the two lines of ever-green trees that flank the apron and converge to form a "V" on the mountain.
