Calm. Clear. Cool. Firm crust with icy ruts. Good exercise.  David jumps for joy:  https://vimeo.com/54247594

Thanks for the vid, Silas. Good meeting you today! The Summits survived but my buddy's VerticalST's had a toe latch disassembly moment. He should have been using the '94 model! Good day for a hike and smiles. I actually enjoyed the glacial conditions.

No face plants to my knowledge; below the wild man taming the bullet proof.

Not as bad conditions the day before, the wind crust was pretty bad on the top 1/3 of the mountain

Thanks for the info and pics. Looking at the lack of the skis going in to the snow I am kind of glad I made the seemingly wise decision to let my ribs heal a few more days before skiing.
