Odell Butte, a fine road ski, is best attempted in good weather when views of the surrounding
mountains can be fully appreciated.
We decided to ski in the midst of a typical Spring storm.
You know the routine … bright sun, wind, rain, sleet, clouds, bright sun, wind rain,
sleet, clouds, etc.
After a quick lunch huddled in the shelter of the fire lookout, we skated five miles back to the
trailhead in under two hours.
Downhill road descents have their advantages!
Our group consisted of Chris Steele and Sam Miller (leader).
