Headed up solo after work on Tuesday night.
Looked bleak compared to the week before, but just about 20 minutes or less got me on top of the 2nd bump, about equal to the top of Sessel. Skins on from that point on.

Construction is still happening at the top of chair one. Here is the description from Sharon @ the pass:
"We are building a new ski patrol bump shack and educational facility.  We will hold backcountry classes, avalanche safety classes, etc. there."

Made my way to the top of gunmount and then skiers left on top of the ridgeline that is closed during the season. Found some lighters, matches and a blunt  Wink

The ski down was fun, suncups were barely noticeable and I pieced my way back down further than I had gone up on snow. Still totally worth the short bushwhack and close proximity to the city.

5 cars in the plaza with a party at the Alpy bar, weird....
Silver Peak from here forward

HA!  And, people still don't believe me when I say it is possible to ski/board during the summer in the lower 48, now there's proof!
