Set out at 6am under clear skies to the West, and advancing cloud from the East.(??) Booted up to the breach where we then skinned the valley and ascended the eastern head of the valley. Lots of slide debris from each side of the valley, but smooth areas were found for the ski.....Once up to the glacier, a snow squall rose and was in and out of there within 30 min.....skinned the glacier to about 8400' and booted the rest to the col. Climbed up to the East Summit of Silver Star and started the ski from 8800'in a break of sun. Snow on the upper 1000' had a thin powder surface, and the rest of the ski down to 5600' was corn, wet goo, or slide path packed.....Avy conditions wern't a concern this day. We then glided through the slightly descending forest to the breach, caught a few more turns in a couple meadows on the east side of Silver Star Cr., and decended to near 3800' on snirt and dirt. Round trip time was 8hrs. Peace, Toby.
