As spring turns to summer, Cascade River Road melts out and grants access to the farther reaches of this mountain fastness. Boston Basin provides fine spring skiing and exciting views of Johannesburg’s calving glaciers. This trip requires stable snow conditions: huge slides from the surrounding peaks frequently fill the entire basin. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; glacier travel; permit/fee area.
