South Sister Prouty Glacier

May 14, 2018

Had a chance to go to Oregon for some work and had an extra day, fortunately it was spectacular weather. My friend in Bend OR wanted to ski the Prouty Glacier on the South Sister. The trail head is about 30 minutes from Bend. From the trail head the route climbs just under 5000 feet to the summit. From there we skied the Prouty Glacier side of the mountain down to Green Lake. To return to our car we then had to circumnavigate about 1/4 of the mountain to rejoin our uptrack about 1200 feet above the car.

Here are two maps a slope angle shaded (key is in the NE corner) and a regular topo. Both are Geopdf’s that will go into the Avenza App

Here is a video and some photos of the tour.
