I'm considering exploring this area as a ski. Anyone done it? Any data you can provide?

You will find several old TR's on this site with route beta using the search function.
As far as current information: there was snow on the beach this morning so no doubt you'll have a very long approach to the trailhead if you opt to go soon.

I have skied the south routes - the chute and the basin that is farther west of the chute route. I have also wanted to ski from the summit to the northeast down the prominent chute, towards lake "Ellinor" - see attached image.  I like this Peak in the Spring when there is more sun and the avalanche potential drops.

The Lake Ellinor couloir is safest later in season.  Snow Bell and I skied it to above the lake once.  Approach from the summit.
I found this TR using a really antiquated search method called "memory":
