Ascent Trip Reportleft 9,300' trailhead below the Arizona Skibowl at 7:10am. Much snow and ice on the shadowed trail and summit ridge. Probably 3 miles of travel in the snow. Ski poles were helpful. Foot grippers might have been nice for my running shoes. Arrived at the saddle at 9:10am, and on the summit at 9:40. 2:30 hours up. 5 minutes on top, then left at 9:45am. Back to the saddle at 10:15, no faster than the ascent due to slippers snow and ice. Headed across to Agassiz Peak, walking entirely on snow, following others' tracks. Arrived Agassiz 11:00am. 5 minutes on top then headed down to the top of the ski lift, arriving at 11:30 after some impressive post holing. 30 minute chair lift ride to the base, then a 10 minute walk to my car, arrived at 12:10. 5 hours round trip.
