Gratefully used their skin track for a good ways but veered off to the right to ski the big glades.
Basin and Tom
The big valley
I reached the north ridge just shy of 11,700'. Love the big views of the Piute Crags and Mt Emerson. It was quite brisk here though, with gusty north winds and temps in the low to mid 20s. Didn't linger.
Another big valley shot from the ridge.
The glades skied really well. In fact I found good snow right from the ridge.
The moraine is a bit of a chore to get up. Steep with some firm spots. The usual. The descent of the moraine was better than expected as those slopes really didn't get too warm today.
Splendid day in the mountains!
