Objective is to ski West Bowl of Granite Mountain from summit lookout. Beacon, shovel & probe are required gear. Also bring trail shoes for first 2 miles or so of trail which will be bare. Plan to start from trail head with skis and boots on pack. Bring ice axe for some steep boot-packing when we first reach snow, but also bring skins, as part of the snow ascent will involve skinning. Expect nice Spring skiing conditions in the West Bowl.
