Thanks to Fred Bentler for showing me this beautiful copyright-exempt USGS map that fits the Ski Sickness scheme so well. See for a very interesting site focused on Washington east of the crest.


February, 2007

This has been several years coming. I talk to my mom on the phone frequently, trying to relate my excitement over the latest ski descent. Just this January, I was raving to her, "Mom, we just skied from the summit of a peak in a range of mountains where nobody had ever skied off any of the summits."

"Where is that?"

"The Southern Picket Range."`


"Oh, the North Cascades, in the middle of nowhere about twelve miles south of the Canadian border."

I'm usually tempted to just say, "in Washington." But, regardless of appearances, I don't like to be a jerk. So now I can refer her to this handy map.
