Ascent Trip Report

Day's fourth of four peaks. The morning's hard crust is soft with all the day's postholing. Still with poles not so soft can't detour to geocache on the way back. Then straight down closed chairlift slope to lodge and a warm chowder supper. It's night now and main slopes are lit, being skied and with skiers lifting upward bound. Ski Mountains are great to hike around.
