Needing some turns, but not willing to deal with epic crowds at the ski areas Monday, I dropped off my truck at Summit, and hitched up to Timberline, and then skinned to the top of the Palmer lift (8200'). Met a couple of telly-ers (Jeff and Nathan) on the way up, and ended up skiing with them most of the day. The snow conditions were pretty good, with 6-12" of powder and not too much windpack. Snow and sleet on the way up turned to freezing fog on the way down, and skiing became making a few turns and trying to scrub off the ice from your lenses Angry  We emerged from the murk just above Timberline and dropped into the Alpine trail, which had great snow and wasn't tracked out too bad yet. It makes for a 4600' descent, so for a fun and safe run without any vehicle hassles it's hard to beat.
