Ascent Trip ReportWe started at 8:30am, hike along the trail until we crossed a large snow field. We left the trail and started traversing along the ridge. The summit has melted out so we had a nice scramble in ski boots, with not much a view once there. Skiing on the way down made up for it. We traversed to the skier's right of the lake to avoid cliffs, skied through the trees nearly to the trail. Returned to the trailhead at 5:30pm.
