July 1, 2011 Trapper Peak

Ben and I made a great trip to Trapper Peak on this gorgeous bluebird day. After climbing up through the lakes basin and heading up the bowl to the ridge we summited and skied from there down to the north on perfect corn. Stopping to take some photos I managed a great series of Ben coming down through the crux rollover, but being away from the home computer I have nothing to share today. We booted back up the left hand climber’s gully east of the summit and proceeded to the Gem Lake couloir which we dropped into from the top over the slumped cornice. It was a  bit of a steep entry but with soft snow all the way to Gem Lake proved to be another great day skiing summer snow in the Bitterroots. There should be good skiing for another few weeks here at least.
