Comments
Comments: I had a late start hoping the sun would come out, it didnt. Skinning up the well packed pow pow sidewalk was as sweet as it gets. Passed a half dozen on way up and lost count of those descending, more than a dozen. Most on snow shoes, a couple of skiers. I was able to climb on my skis almost to the summit. Silly windy and blind blowing snow, crawled into foundation and got the heck out of there quickly. Ski down was dreamy.
