Thunder Meadows Day Trip

Hiked up to Thunder Meadows on Saturday. Some tough climbing over the head wall into Thirstquencher Bowl and then the going was good. Avalanches had cut down lots of trees in Cabin Bowl and made some nice gladded skiing for some other time. Very hardpack conditions but some good powder skiing in the trees in Orca Bowl on the way home.
