Castle Peak with Jeff 12-20-2012

The sky was bluebird clear but the wind was howling at over 50 mph across the exposed ridges.  We parked in the usual spot and nailed the approach up the south ridge of Castle Peak, a direct line to the top of the bowl with no gully crossings or kick turns required.  Once we hit the top of the bowl, we were getting ice blasted by particles chucked at us by the swirling wind with no place to hide.  The ski down was through mixed conditions but the long unbroken run was a great reward.  There was one soft snow gully that we passed on our way down that had great skiing over a barely covered boulder field. This will be a destination run on our next lap up here.

I would like to experience snow boarding, I will try it if I get a chance to have a vacation trip and find travel agents for the best offers.

Snowboarding is fun though here in our country we don’t have snows. We need to go to other country to try this extreme sport such as in Canada or USA. Anyway, luckily our travel visa application got approved with the help of immigration lawyers and consultant from Migration Expert. Their service is great!
