Sierra Nevada eastside ski

After a week of yoyoing the Mammoth area frontcountry we decided to check out conditions in the mountains.  A four hour ski with my friends Tim, Andy, Dan & Janine put us six miles from, and four thousand feet above, the car.  Being that there are only two types of snow (good and excellent) one would have to say the conditions were the latter.  Lots of Northern Juncos and Clarks Nut Crackers in the Western White Pines.

Andy said he hit some rocks...?
