Craig and I skied to an undisclosed location Friday evening where we drank liquor and supped on Thai take-out.  The next morning we skied over Nordic Pass and then up to the northwest ridge of Silver Peak.  The lee slopes of the ridge were well-scored with snowmobile tracks.  Snow was variable with corn here and there but the steep slopes of the ridge were deep mush.  We followed a highmarker's track to the ridgecrest.  Despite our best efforts (stomping on a small cornice, ski cuts) we couldn't get anything to slide.  Skied off about 1 p.m., back at the car at 3.  Lots of snow still.
