Skiing the Jewel

12 10 2010

Saturday Boone, Dan, and I headed to Girdwood to ski the Jewel Glacier.  We started our 10 mile, 3500 ft elevation gain (after 3 laps) in the clouds, which quickly gave way to sunshine!

View from the Jewel. Crystal Lake and Crow Pass.

We decided to head towards the Raven Glacier, but the Havocs got worked on some rocks below the Jewel. It’s still early season 🙂
