Thanks for the replys......

Don't know where we'll be camping. I have been at WIlliams Lake lot's in the fall and know the area well.

Is the lake area a good place for base-camp to access the area I asked about on the top post ?

Yes, Lake Fork Peak is a relatively short skin from Williams Lake. I recommend camping above the lake on the west side - that way you will get the morning sun, have trees for wind shelter if needed, and a bit closer to your objective. There are plenty of places to camp on the bench above the lake on the west side.

Did not find anyone camping when I went in Sun AM - Bagged out at last moment?? Actually no one else was up Williams Lake ara except a few hikers that only went to the lake. Had a great tour on Sun to about 12200 in NE bowl below Lake Fork Peak. Main chutes well stocked w/snow and should be decent for a corn sking season later this month.

Yup,

We made a last minute change in plans on Friday evening. We weren't encouraged about the Avy danger on the last report posted here and it was snowing like mad and windy Friday evening when we drove up to Taos (new snow + wind + sunny day saturday = possibe death) !

And the on-off switch BROKE on my friends beacon as were gearing up in Albuquerque! I took that as an omen that we needed to stay safe. Williams basin was out.

Instead we climbed up to Bull of the Woods and camped there. By Saturday morning we had 6 to 8 inches of new snow and decided to skin up and climb Gold Hill. It was great weather, sunny and very windy on the hill. We climbed a beautifull false summit on the rocks to stay safe and skiied back down.

The snow was mostly crap. Very hard with a weak layer underneath. If we were on an aspect that mattered, I'd gauge the conditions as to dangerous for 30' + slopes.

We are planning another assult of Lake Fork Peak the weekend of 4/21. I'll post here with a better trip report for all.

Reasonable choice - easier to stay out of trouble in BOW and Gold Hill area. I head to CO for a week or so after TSV closes, so may not be back for the Apr 21 adventure, but will stay posted.

Based on what I saw on Sat, the skiing on Kachina Peak was very good, due to its north aspect, but similar places (like nice N facing run off Sin Nombre or Lake Fork Peak) without a controlled/skier compacted base may have been an temptation.... By Sun, things had started to cement in and was great for a tour, but not for turns.

I just returned from week and a half of of BC in CO, but now time to hit the home turff again. I plan on going up Sat or Sun (Apr 28 or 29), whichever day looks best for weather. Let me know if interested in meeting.
