The forecast called for partly sunny after morning fog on the western slopes. Fooled again. Craig and I tried to ski Mt. Roosevelt at the western end of Snow Lakes. The clouds did not burn off as expected altho there were the few sucker holes to get our hopes up. We climbed up to the ridge separating Source and Snow Lakes and dropped down through 6-12" of moderate mush to the Snow Lakes floor. We crossed over to the base of Mt Roosevelt and climbed up through the trees to avoid the main avy lanes. There was much recent debris and a 8 foot wide pinwheel of snow that dug out a 2 foot trench. No deep releases were seen. We got to 5100' where the visibility stopped. We decided to turn around as we stood in the clouds listening to stuff drop and slide around us. The best things to be said about the descent and the rest of the day was that it didn't rain, no one got hurt, no one broke any gear and we got a nice workout.
