Route: Ski trails, access road, (Tenney Mountain Northeast Peak), access road, bushwhack, ski trails

With rain moving out, I opted to hike something I'd been putting off for a few years. Unfortunately, the showers didn't let up as forecasted, so I ended up ascending the mostly bare ski trails in a steady rain.

After reaching the top of the double chairlift, I took a muddy access road to the communications tower, located at the top of a proposed expansion area in the 1980s. While I had originally planned to bushwhack to the true highpoint, the dropping temperatures and continued rain persuaded me to call it a day and head down. The communications tower peak appeared to potentially have decent views, so perhaps a return trip is warranted.
