Tahoe View.  Our first view of Mt. Tallace and Lake Tahoe from the Ralston summit ridge.

Approaching the Summit.  Toby, Chris and Ben leading up to the top of Ralston Peak.

Upper Ralston Lake Bowl.  Note the huge cornices here.  Chris and I dropped in where the small subsidiary ridge hits the main ridge and the cornice abates.  The tracks are barely visible.  We found some pretty sweet powder snow in here.

Lower Bowl.  Looking up from Ralston Lake to the summit.  At middle left of the photo you can see the small avalanche I triggered.

Across to Echo Peak.  Chris gets back into ski mode on his splitboard, touring across the upper Echo Lakes valley.
