In running this website and going on ski trips, it’s tempting to continually try to outdo yourself. You might start to think that the next trip always needs to be bigger, better and more significant than the last. While the personal ambition to do more in the mountains is good to keep one from getting bored, it can’t be the only driving force. Sometimes, despite one’s eagerness to find that gnar line that no one else is even thinking about, you must content yourself with a good old fashioned corn snow harvest on a well known route. To make what is becoming a long story short, we poked around the general vicinity of Mt. Adams IV over a week ago hoping to ski these three lines… and whatever else we found along the way.
