Skied from 100-150m below the summit as it was getting pretty warm. Nice pow pow.

Boot-pack up, then ski down. Fantastic spring snow conditions after the initial steep, firm ~100m.

For the ski. Which, is, well, awesome!

Boot-packed up to the col and skied from 50m below the col (right hand line) due to hard and variable snow. Nice powder lower down.

Slope used to avalanche at 10:00 most mornings in the summer sun. Just got off in time after assisting my altitude-sick partner to descent faster than he really wanted to....
