Comments
Comments: Greeley Ponds trail was packed out. From there we broke trail in about 6 inches of powder on a firm crust down low, to about 1 foot up high. Some pretty big drifts in the narrower sections of ridge walk. By the time we were coming back, some of our tracks had already blown in almost completely. Met 3 backcountry skiers skinning up just below the slide, heading up to the ridge to ski a slide back down to the Kanc. Holy wild ride!
