Any pics looking West?
I've only gone up Ranger, but a friend didn't know the preferred route and went up Palisades, said it wasn't bad. One of these days I'll try it that way.<sL4yEr>RuLz said:No way. Up Palisades down Ranger. Ranger's one of the best decents up there (next to Deep Creek). Granted, Palisades is longer decent, but there's too many eff-u switchbacks/false summits and a stair climb down that blows too much vert. There, I said it !
I'll only do Deep Creek as a shuttle with 2 runs. I've done it from the Corral Pass side before, then jumped over to Skookum. That was a nice ride.ACree said:I've only gone up Ranger, but a friend didn't know the preferred route and went up Palisades, said it wasn't bad. One of these days I'll try it that way.
Deep Creek looks like a waste of vert to go down, but going up is a nice way to skip the road. Definitely a work out though.

Yah i don't think i'm advocating either route, personally i think the standard up road to trail is the best way. It's a bit of a grind in spots, more time spent in saddle the other direction certainly.gearz said:Seems to be a little wierd in my book. The first mile of Palisades would be total push. Upper wouldn't be too bad to climb I suppose...
In combination with upper White River down to Buck creek, i agree. But i don't think Deep qualifies as a waste of hard earned elevation. Certainly it's fast, but it's not so uninteresting to me.gearz said:I like the Deep Creek descent quite a bit. The upper mile is a little too steep (waste of hard earned elevation) but the rest is bliss.

Just checking.gearz said:....again.
Got a good look at the Emmons, looks to be in good shape for skiing right now. Saw a plane down on the Ranger Airstrip to the SW also. :thumbsup:
