 Ski Touring Outpost Peak   

I figured I post a link to my recent little excursion this past Saturday up Outpost Peak in the Gores. For those wanting a nice, relatively safe winter ski/snowshoe tour up a 12er, I'd highly recommend Outpost's south ridge. We hit it a little early, i.e. it was a little boney in spots especially down low as expected, but there rarely is a bad day in the Gore. If you want to check it out, hope you enjoy!

Outpost Peak

Cheers!

Glad you got the ole splitboarding "wet your whistle" moment this weekend!Yeah, give me a shout whenever you come up this way. Always fun to get in the Gore. Yes, Kona sure does pimp with that sweater. Use to be Rainier’s "jester" sweater, but Kona has inherited it.
