Trailhead: Along the lake, Pyramid Lake Resort
Activities: Snowshoe / Cross-country Skiing
An exploratory trip to the ridge from Pyramid lake was fun and new. I guess venture beyond goes with this post. We found some isothermal snow, meaning the snow is constant temperature throughout the snowpack and if you step in it when it is soft, you will punch right through. Even snowshoes will not help float you. Once we cleared the tree areas to the open areas, the snow was packed better. You will run into different snowpack where ever you go, so be prepared.
