Goodale Mountain

Location: Taboose Creek Campground south of Big Pine
Elevation: 12,772′
Elevation Change: 6,500′ +/- based on snow level
Recommended Map: Kings Canyon High Country – Tom Harrison

I found this less known east side giant by asking Howie Schwartz for something new and worthy to day ski. His advice is worth following. I don’t believe it’s in the guidebooks and I had never noticed it from the highway staring right at me. There are larger looking peaks that are also more well known in this area, but Goodale turned out to be a huge ski descent with excellent access. The route finding is obvious and the aspect is mostly east facing. I don’t know anything about other ski descents on this peak.
