Skiing North Face Jacinto !?!

Don't know if this is really a question or a comment... but this photo, 'borrowed' from John Robinson's 'San Jacinto' book...

Every time we drive by the north face on our way to the desert, I look up there and can't believe it is even somewhat skii-able...

This pictures says 'enroute down Snow Creek' --- so the next time I drive by and see Snow Creek, if I look straight up from there, can I really tell my friend that people ski down that slope?



If I didn't know of this photo, I still might not believe it!!!

My wilderness partner has skied it a couple of times.

He was fortunate to escape from an avalanche in the next couloir that surely would have swept him to his death.

It's steep, but it's do-able. It's not overly narrow until the last 500+ft. That said, I don't ski.

We had a guy here at work who used to ski it with Randonee gear.  I thought he was nuts.  Smile

it is on my to do list, but access and conditions have been an issue.

Very interesting ...... and amusing info! Thanks... I still can't believe people go down this face let alone up it....

406, now those would be some pictures I'd really love to see.... in fact, how much would it cost me to finance a helmet cam for you  Wink  Question

Probably just the cost of the cam.  On sale right now at most sporting goods store. Laughing

the pov helmet cam footage makes me car sick...seems to be popular although, so I must be in the minority.
