Summit of Mt. Adams
Enjoy the views of the entire Cascade Range for over 100 miles on clear days. There are two distinct descent options. The main route is to simply follow your climbing route. The snow will vary somewhat depending on the amount of consolidation that has occurred but often the best snow is on the face below the false summit. This pitch starts out as the steepest section of the descent in a relatively narrow space then rapidly opens into a wide run that is a delight for all levels of skiers and riders.
Once back to the camp sites, boot or ski down the ridge to the trail head depending on the coverage. In some years, the snow coverage is quite deep at elevations just above the trail head so good navigation skills are necessary not to get lost on descent when entering the trees.
