Alyeska's North Face provided treats worthy of soldiering on to the end. We were the last two through Rag Doll gate. Thanks to the pleasant patroller who said, "No problem"; he had just tied the rope and flipped the sign down, but let us through with no hassle. High Traverse was very good, too with soft snow beneath the 6" fresh on top with a hint of the old tracks. North Face still reigned.
GB & Dr. Snow were amply rewarded for enduring the boney traverse to the Knuckles on North Face.
Storm skiing in Knuckles was excellent.
