SAINT JOE CABIN
Date: January 26 – 28, 2018, Trip Leader: Paul Jensen
This trip seemed to come together somewhat at the last minute. On Friday morning Camie and I made the climb to the cabin, dropped our packs and skinned up the ridge to the first high point for a run. We had some deep powder conditions which made for tough trail breaking but fun skiing. That evening after dark, 6 others showed up which made for a very full cabin! After we all got settled in though things didn’t seem so bad and actually I think we all had a fun time sharing the cabin. The next morning Forest showed up with plans to spend Saturday night and Susanna and David came up for the day. Camie, Forest (with his new ski setup!) and I spent the day skiing a couple different runs in great powder conditions. That night we again had 8 people in the cabin and probably 8 different kinds of alcohol! In the morning most people had to leave but Camie and I plus 2 of the others made the climb up for another run before skiing out. It was a fun, powdery weekend!!
LITTLE SAINT JOE (DAY TRIP)

David and I went up for the day only. We got to explore and skied just above the cabin. David dug a pit and evaluated the snowpack as it snowed on us all day long. Although we got to enjoy and skied nice powder.
