Spring ski season is in on. I was lucky enough to get the hall pass for a Eastern Sierra ski mission this week and finally made it down to Mt. Whitney. Although Mt. Whitney is not known for its amazing skiing it is a peak that's gotta be done at some point right? At 14,491 ft It is the highest point in the lower 48. Like most big ski tours this day had it all: Crust, corn, powder, knee deep post-holing, sun, wind, and some good turns as well. Pretty psyched to have had good weather and the chance to knock this out in a day.
