Spearhead and Phalanx Glacier – Feb 6 2010

Words and photos by Sharon Bader and Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.

Lee wanted to do the Cham chutes. After getting there we figured the snow would be better down the Spearhead side so that’s where we went! Twice! Then up the Stairmaster to Phalanx for the last hurrah.

After we skied down Phalanx, we boot packed back up to go back down and around and down.
