Ascent Trip Report

The forecast was for sunny Friday, so I headed south from town in the morning to ski St Helens. There is currently snow all the way from the parking lot to the summit, making for an awesome 5000ft ski descent. We skinned up to the summit by 2pm, being careful not to get too close to the edge of the massive cornice. It was very windy, and every other party we saw turned back below the summit.

The ski back to the car was amazing. The snow looks like it will hold all the way to the parking lot for at least another few weeks.
