Jughandle Mountain - 8340 feet

John leading the way with Jughandle to the left
Yesterday Ralph Shelton, Chris Reedy and I met John Platt at Lake Fork for a little ski tour up Jughandle Mountain.  We travelled a little over four miles from the trail head to the summit at 8340 feet.  As you can see from the pictures the weather was absolutely fantastic!

Some of the turns
We did a couple of laps on some low angle terrain at both Jughandle and another area to the right called Ladybug.  The snow was fantastic, varying between light sun crust up top to silky smooth powder down lower.  Our timing was perfect as the sun is really starting to warm the area up.

Another great day to be in the mountains in the winter!

Just poached this video of me off of John's website:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHKeN3WfvFU&feature=player_embedded
