Sky Mountain via Skyline Lake

Try #1. Carla, Mark, and I parked at the Berne Maintenance Facility, and headed for Arrowhead Mountain. After leaving the railroad tracks and skiing up 100 feet of icy snow in tight trees, we decided to turn around and try a different destination.

Try #2. We pulled into the crowded Stevens Pass north parking lot and skied up the Skyline Ridge road. Much better snow here. We skied past Skyline Lake, up to the ridge, and did a run down Moonlight Bowl, awesome snow. We then skinned up Sky Mountain, skied back down to Moonlight Bowl, returned to the lake, and down to the parking lot. Lots of great skiing and excellent snow.
