Silver Peak

On the second storm day, Scott & I were both itching to get some skinning in, so we were thinking about going down to Jake's/Rubicon area after dropping Melissa off at Squaw.  But we decided to do something closer to Squaw.

Silver Peak is the peak just to the north of Olympic Village.  Accessed from Pole Creek, it's a mellow slog on a fire road for the first 2 miles or so, then you follow a gentle ridge for another mile or two to the top.  The top 500' - 1000' of vert were pretty amazing.  Deep, fluffy pow.  I'd only recommend this tour if you have enough time to do a few laps.  We only had time for one lap, and although it was worth it, I'd have loved to do like 20 more laps on the top...

Here's the strava link until it pooped out...
