Tuscarora and Wolverine
Photograph number 1: Ted on WolverinePhotograph number 2: June 15 at noon down between Tuscarora and Wolverine. L. Mary in background. 35-40 degree slope probably un-skiable except in spring. One spill and you slide over the rocks. We did not spill though. Even this corn snow would slither down after a turn and meet you in the middle of the next one. I believe any powder would have gone right off the second we got on the slope.Photograph number 3: Tuscarora,(?)

Photographer stood on ridge. We came down over cliffs just above lake on snow strip just above Chick's ski tips, pretty steep, especially at top. No chance of stopping on such a slope once skier is off his edges unless he can get a pole in. Next winter we'll stay too the left, on a giant slalom!Photograph number 11: Wolverine 7:00 a.m. first swing of ridge, June 15
