Partner had to bail at the last minute for our trip up the Fryingpan (I wish I'd read the Partners Wanted section last night) so I decided to take a trip up the "old standby." 

Able to skin within 100' of the parking lot.  There are 3 bare spots at Panorama Point that require carrying.  The light breeze and filtered sunshine made for a pleasant ascent.

I descended around 12:30.  The upper part of the snowfield skied great.  The snow got really grabby between 8.5k and 7k, a little less sticky below that.

I managed get some turns down the winter route of Pan Point, but the snow won't be continuous there for much longer.
