Skiing the North Face of Mt. Whitney

May. 23rd 2011

Being a denizen of the Sierra, our friend Andy over at Sierra Descents gets to do some late-season skiing.

Often folks think of corn skiing when they think of late season in the Sierras. But as Andy showed on his recent descent of the North Face of Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 (on Maestrales, a great boot for the kind of all-day suffer-fest it sounds like it took him to nail this line), you can find the fresh, or at least the soft goods, late in the season in the Sierra as well.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’d feel like to ski a big line in the Sierra, this is some worthwhile viewing. Thanks for sharing Andy!
