Esha is a picturesque little peak that is easy to see and access right off hwy 395 with an ideal layout. Park on pavement where the snow ends near the McGee Creek Trailhead and tour up rolling lower angle canyon that warms you up for an easy 2000′ walk to the north ridge and over to summit. It’s a big peak that is easy to find and figure out. You’ll probably go for powder in the most north facing chute and ski super dreamy corn down below back to the car. I have enjoyed the ski to McGee Creek next door but I haven’t skied the Wineglass Couloir. This is a link up I’ve heard of to enhance your Esha ski day. Oh, and the view from summit of Red and White will get you thinking.
