Well, I guess my information is dated. I wonder why they stopped installing toilets. People are just going to bury it in the snow anyway.

That is good to see. He has put a lot of effort into it.

fedak Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, I hurt my knee in J Tree couple weeks ago and it's a bad sprain. I need to let it rest for a bit. We are not likely to do anything for a while. But again, thanks for all your help in this matter. Cheers, Alois.

How was your Europe Trip? Was it fun?
I was in Austrian Alps in April 2 years ago though not for climbing, for skiing, so can’t advise you any route but I must say that there is much snow even in early April, but the locals say every year is different (and also depends on region). Please tell how you trip went. I would like to go to Europe again for a longer stay and, probably, in summer, and have some drive around.
Alps region is really charming and inspiring at any time of the year, Austrian ski resorts look magic: https://tranio.com/traniopedia/tips/cosy-cabins-and-snow-glazed-slopes-austrian-alpine-ski-resorts-to-live-and-invest-in_5294/

I've done some hiking in clear creek metro park, which has some "decent" hills, as far as Ohio goes.

I work at a military base and do wind sprints on an old launch ramp. Works quite well actually :)

We are going to be there on a business trip, and will have Friday and Saturday of that week to do it. As such, doing 6-8 hours of driving doesn't seem like the best use of time. That said, let's say that travel distance isn't a big limiter. What would you suggest? Thanks!

Matt

Video of rescue near Whitney's Mountaineer's route from Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/27673778601305 ... S_TIMELINE

On Saturday the crew of H-70 performed a high-altitude rescue of a climber injured by an avalanche along the Mountaineers Route to Mount Whitney. The climber was safely flown to Lone Pine Airport where he was transferred to the care of an ambulance crew. Compliments to the crew for their excellent work in such a technically-challenging environment. The victim and his family are grateful for your public service.

Another heavy and comparable snow year, 1983, my partner and I skied to Bishop Pass on July 13th. We started (on skis) at South Lake and didn't take them off until our camp at Dusy Basin. True Story..
