Kendall: Knobs, Lakes & Loops

The 5 of us got to the Gold Creek Sno-Park at 745 and were on the well worn logging road by 815. Skinned all the way to the lakes basin with a well packed trail with lots of fresh powder on the side. We dug at pit at lake 2 and confirmed the NWAC report. The fresh 10" wasn't completely bonded the the rain crust, but the powder was cohesive so we weren't concerned about storm slab, especially in the trees of Knob 2. Skinned up to the ridge just shy of Knob 2 and transitioned into alpine. The snow under the trees was not as deep so we could feel the icy rain crust, but it edged well and the skiing was superb. Wished we had time for another lap, but we all had afternoon plans. Skied all the way to the trail head on packed powder. An awesome day was had by all. Out by 3pm with grins all around.
