a.k.a. (in summer): Skyline Trail, clockwise.

Above the clouds all day. Sunburned in February. It probably would have been a pretty good day even if the snow hadnít been so good.

Climbed to Panorama Point comfortably (in short sleeves), thanks to a smooth multi-use track and a good set of steps up the hill. Plenty of snowshoers about, but not too crowded.

Upper reaches of P Point were wind-packed, as was the long descending traverse across upper Edith Creek basin. Then mostly good snow down low. Skiing moderately steep, moderately heavy SE aspect at midday generated sizable pinwheels; other aspects held good powder.

Unknown skier in photo was from party of six on Mazama Ridge.
