Snowboarding the Sisters and Jakes Peak

Last weekend, Fernando and I went backcountry touring. He has loads of experience and thus picked the terrain. On Sunday, we went up towards Round Top in Mokelumne Wilderness and then ended up shredding the bowl west of it. Here's a pic from our lunch break - Round Top in the center:

Two runs - one from the ridge to the upper right of the tree, and another one from the left - both down into the bowl.

Monday, we hit the jackpot on Jake's peak: nice and sunny, only one other car, awesome views of Lake Tahoe, and to top it off, some powder on steeper sections in the shade. Yay!

Crystal Range - Pyramid Peak is sticking out behind it.

Fernando is looking forward to ski ...

... and off we go ...

... fresh ...

... and views.

Fernando has a post with more pictures. Sweet times!
