Pat Millegan and Gianluca Interlandi joined guide Ben Haskell for a TGIF tour on Friday 1/25/08. We took advantage of the clear skies and moderate avalanche danger to complete the Chair Peak circumnavigation tour in a clockwise fashion. We were hoping for good skiing on north and east aspects of the tour and found pockets of great snow at the lower elevations. Everything up high had been quite wind affected on all aspects which made the skiing there a little more challenging than anticipated. But low temps, no wind, and constant sunshine made for perfect touring conditions. The views of Glacier Peak, the Snoqualmie High Peaks, Chair Peak, and the local peaks around the Alpental valley confirmed why this is considered one of the classic tours of the Snoqualmie Pass area.
