I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
|In some places the snow was unconsolidated and soft(with breakable crust on top)|
|In others it was almost too hard to bare boot|
|Had to either side slip over an icy bulge framed by rocks... or point it|
|Mark made the sensible decision to slip down it|
|Just make sure to ski cut first and let the top layer slough off|
|And just like that, back in the ski area|
