Baldy Main Chute - October Skiing

It felt great to put on skis and go for a walk today. Andy and I went up to Alta to see for ourselves what the first storms of the season had left behind. We weren't the only ones -- a number of skiers had similar thoughts.

As we ascended, the skin track became gradually less and less travelled. On the Baldy shoulder we passed the last of the people ahead of us. Andy and I traded turns breaking trail for the final ~700 vertical. The sensations of skinning and kick turns made the outing worthwhile by themselves.

We reached our objective, Baldy Main Chute, to find a rocky entrance but otherwise looked pretty filled in.

The rest was way better than expected!
