Vesper Peak, WA – Backcountry Ski

This was a trip to remember…Lucky Sevens!  7/07/07.  Vesper Peak is accessed from the Mountain Loop Highway, just before Barlow Pass.  Take the Sunrise Mine road (#4065) and Sunrise Mine trail (#707).

Some videos of the descent.  Despite the sun cups and rain runnels, the corn (snow) was nicely cooked!

I love the following video!  I didn’t know that I was being filmed, but this was a euphoric moment.  I had to take a minute to savor it, because the descent from Headlee Pass was steep, narrow, and not a place where I wanted to fall!

Here is a video of the main creek crossing:
