Spearhead and Corona Bowl Dec 9 2007
and photos by Sharon Bader and Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.
We were able to get up the Glacier chair earlier today, 9:30, but the vis was not as good as yesterday so we weren't quite as ambitious.
The vis was poor all the way to Don't Swill. We were considering heading down to Circle Lake but the last time we did that in these conditions we were in a whiteout pretty much all day. So to appease the white out gods we conceded that the skies would not clear and heading into the Spearhead Glacier to Corona Bowl.
As luck would have it when we decided on the shorter day the skies started to clear.
So we took a couple of runs in the Spearhead to take advantage of the vis window and great snow! Some other guys were venturing in to do Corona Bowl.
A small avalanche that was set off by the group that skied Corona earlier. A windloaded slab released above their skin track.
After a couple of runs in the Spearhead we bootpack up Corona Bowl.
Corona was MONEY!
