Ascent Trip Report

Skinned up Grizzly Gulch to Twin Lakes Saddle and then followed ridge line to Wolverine. Skied off the northeast face down to Lake Martha. Skinned past Lake Catherine to the saddle south of Mt. Tuscarora where we entered Alta resort and skied back to our car. Tremendous day considering the low amount of snow in general at lower altitudes. We were just high enough to get decent accumulation.
