Ascent Trip Report

Awesome. 8 degrees at the bottom. I would guess that the temp at the top was around -10 degrees, much less if you consider wind chill. Extremely snowy, several feet deep. Very few people on the mountain this day. Bare booted it. Was hoping to enjoy the slide down, but snow too thick to build up speed.
