Parking lot still blocked by snow should be clear by Saturday and does require NW forest pass.  Skinnable snow from car to col. Breezy and partly cloudy weather with interesting lenticulars. Madison Avenue had soft 3-4" slushy skiing not sticky.  Gulch below SEW spire was slightly firmer 1-2" soft wet snow and a nice smooth run to the hairpin.    https://vimeo.com/98704650

Nice report, Silas...

Rocks are merely obstacles to be avoided in the skiing process.

And rock climbing is a way to get to the top of particularly intriguing ski lines!
