Ascent Trip Report

After full day of skiing (some 15 miles total) made the final trip a peakbagging affair. I rode the lift to the final drop off for Peak 6 and hiked up the 300 foot snow trail in the extreme terrain area. It was icy. At the top of the peak I put on my skis and found a route down one of the upper bowls all the way to the bottom. I only count the hiking part for the ascent up. Much of the upper ridge was corniced and that is not for me and my level of skiing so I found one small area I could slip slide start and get going
