2014-06-11  Curvaceous couloir  Climbed and skied Curvaceous couloir on Paiute yesterday. Rode our bikes from the gate and encountered one snow drift before the turn off for Mitchell Lake TH. Stashed our bikes at the Mitchell Creek picnic area and hiked the rest of the road (wasn‘t ridable anyways). Word around the campground is that the gate is slated to open on Saturday June 20th this year, not the 13th as has been mentioned previously. Good freeze night before made skin in easy albeit not without route finding SNAFUs. Curvaceous was filled in in it‘s entirety and linked up with snow field above Bue lake. Some sharks here and there but altogether an enjoyable ski. Crooked on Audubon is still in but melting fast. Toll still looks very nice and skiable. Getting out was pretty s--tty. There is still a lot of snow in the trees which was very soft at noon which combined with a very difficult to follow trail makes the last mile between Mitchell Lake and the TH demoralizing. Gonna wait a couple of weeks before headed back for Toll. I can send pictures via email or PM if interested, I‘m apparently resizingly-challenged. Dave B   2014-06-11  0  1    
2013-08-04  East Ridge  I highly recommend the East Ridge over the standard route which ascends a loose gully (Class 2+) up from Blue Lake. Next time I might return via the East Ridge. The only thing you will miss (other than loose scree) is a gorgeous view of Blue Lake and some killer views of Mt. Toll. Register is a soggy mess - bring a replacement if you are so inclined. PM for a gpx of the full loop from Audubon if you are interested. Good Luck. jeremy27   2013-08-05  0  2
