Ski tour to Observation peak glades. This is the west aspect glades south of Observation Peak. Looking to ascend to treeline with the plan for a few 200m-250m runs and planning to assess the rib above treeline for a little longer run based on conditions and snow quality. Planning for a moderate pace.

We won’t plan on carpooling based on Covid-19 procedures.
