Ascent Trip ReportBiked up Hwy 242 to the Black Crater trailhead. Skinned up the north side to the north rim, then around the west rim to the summit. 4" of new snow! Did not ski the upper part of the crater. The 4" of new snow on hardpack did not look stable and I was the only skier. Skied off the SE side, then dropped in the lower part of the crater and returned down the north side.
