Decker, Blackcomb Mt. Nov 27 2009

Decker, Friday Nov 27th. BLUE SKIES! Cold temperatures and it didn’t rain this high!

Heading up Blackcomb Glacier. We weren’t the only ones with this idea!

Looking back to East Col and the route to Decker via Circle Ridge.

Heading up Decker. Circle Lake is the flat spot in the background.

Decker Glacier! Showing more of its guts!


Getting up over the top of Decker was more of a challenge this trip!

Near verticle non-supporting snow made for some interesting climbing.

After a great run down 9th hole we decided to head back to make sure we made the download. Not a good time to ski to the bottom quite yet!

I know, overexposed but I though it was a cool shot.

The nuggy shot!
