Fuji Mountain

March 7, 2010

The original trip plan was to do a loop to Fuji Shelter, but we decided to climb Fuji Mountain instead. Snow conditions were not great (slushy/icy/faceplanty), but we had such low expectations given the recent weather that it seemed pretty good. At least we could climb without too much slipping. As usual, the snow improved as we climbed. And it was a beautiful sunny day. We parked at Waldo Lake Sno Park and climbed two miles to the Fuji Mtn. trail. Then we climbed to Verde Lake where we had lunch. We reached the summit 4.5 hours after we started, just as the weather was changing (snow on the way, finally!!), making for some great views and pictures. The downhill was fast and fun. Thanks to this energetic and fit group of skiers, all cheerfully willing to add several miles plus 1400 feet to the trip at the last minute. Skiers were members Dave Jensen, Harold Thompson, Randy Sinnott, and non-member John Hartman. Leader, Chrissy Anderson.
