Group of 3 skinned up to top of pacific crest and down the bowl. Tracks going up weren't too bad but crust on top was tough to breakthrough heading down, reminding me my thighs will be unhappy with me tomorrow. No instability. 

Fog about half way going up but soon clear of it and got some great views of the valley.

A few others on skis or snowshoes but not crowded by any stretch.

That crust softened appreciably in the afternoon. Which was great because I rolled-out of bed around 1030 with a pair of logs for legs after going hard Sat. Made two sets of powder 1s (so one set of Powder 11s) and was home @ Hyak before the "rain" began. I much appreciated the compacted slope conditions for the ascent.

Moral of story is don't ski when you can snowboard
