Ascent Trip ReportRode snowmobile from winter gate to Christmas Meadows, where we transitioned to skis. Gained the N ridge immediately from parking lot to ascend. Crampons/ice axes would have been nice, but with fresh snow, were unnecessary. Attempted to ski the NW face, with mixed results. Lots of shallow buried rocks up high led to a beautiful run out with 12"+ of fresh powder, and a base that likely hasn't been touched by humans this season. We skied a second lap of the lower section before hiking back to the snowmobile through the forest.
