Ascent Trip Report

The snow on Penguin Peak is absolutely mind-blowing right now! Best snow descent I've had in my life. Massive glissades mixed with snowpack that makes it feel like you are running with spring shoes (a "bouncy plunge-step"). Just, sheer joy. We came down last night in probably 1/10th the time it took us to hike up! Oh, you could probably ski/board it too..if you're into that sort of thing.
