4th crossing was just in the fog at 10am. We broke out at Sluskin's chair and saw only one other skier today. Fog moved up the hill below us but remained at 8000' until 3pm when it rose to 9000' so we could ski down in a whiteout. snoslut suffered on the many flats with his board. Sad  There's still skiable snow within 100' of the parking lot, but not continuous.

Gotta practice my crosscountry splitboard technique.  The skooch leg is in development.  Able to walk in half circles now.  Also working on split skiing with skins on but kinda hard with the skooch leg forming.  I can only make right turns.  Should be ready for a Muir descent shortly.

Otherwise another great adventure on the salt mine.
