I somehow screwed up and posted this without the trip report.  Probably a good thing because it was nothing more than a massive pile of sarcasm directed at the park service for having the gate closed on a partly sunny holiday weekend with minimal snow on the road.
We hiked up to Cougar rock and skied the pavement.  Woo hoo!

As much as I hate to break it to you I made the same descent under, ahem, "similar conditions"  Roll Eyes a couple years ago. We missed the amphitheater pillow line though so I think you can claim that one!

I hope you had your avalanche beacon on and were keeping track of yourself with a GPS (compass and map in reserve) given the heavy and continuing snowfall (as perceived by the Park). Roll Eyes
