At least a foot of dry new snow since yesterday afternoon.  Much breezier today too.  Four great young fellas broke trail for me in thigh deep fresh. After an hour or so, it was too deep and too cold for me so I bailed. The others pointed down too and headed for lift assisted skiing in the swirling storm.

Sorry I had to bail. I'm a bad partner.

Finally got moving but even with my rad pine branch and two straps for a skin, I was eventually hunted down. We went over to the boulder garden for shelter and made coffee, then went back the way we came.

natural crown of a foot or more thick on one of the steep boulderes. Slabs and shooting cracks around diving board. Narcid quality snow in the lee. Got one cornice ski cut near the road the propogate about 6' deep on the way down.

Great workout though. My hip flexors hurt.
