Ascent Trip ReportWe decided to attempt our ascent from the Hyak Ski Area and Nordic Trail system approaching from Rockdale Lake. We decided not to use snow shoes. This was a great decision until we reached the backcountry ski route when we started to post hole. Then as we approached from the south side, post holing was excessive (Three feet) and due to time considerations needed to turn back. We exited via the common corridor route making this a loop trip.
