Had a great ski with Pat and Devlin. Tried a new route (for us), starting on the SW corner of the mountain off the road. We skinned up the road a ways (big monster trucks could've saved us a few miles, but it was easy skinning). Then the bushwhacking began. The winds picked up on the ridge and there were times when we weren't sure if we should skin or boot. On the way down we hit the most glorious pow field... and all was well again.
