Red Slate Mountain, CA - 5/1/08 6 Years, 7 Months ago  
Access from Reno, NV:
US 395 south
Road to Convict Lake
Drive Time: 3 h

Run:
I hiked along the Convict Trail to consistent snow near the gauging station, then continued on skis towards Mildred Lake, Lake Wit-So-Nah-Pah, Lake Constance and finally the North Couloir of Red Slate Mountain. I booted up the couloir, then the short distance to the summit. I was able to ski from the summit, but the snow was highly variable; deep, wind-affected powder to a variety of crusts.
Elevation: 6000
Distance: 15 miles
