Skiing the 6" fresh was so sweet after such a drought! The storm continued all day with a hammering wind above timberline. Near Point summit bowl is such a rock garden that survival skiing was required to get down from the summit. Sastrugi, rocks, breakable crust were the highlights in the summit bowl. But the snow below timberline fell in cold, calm air. The skiing was so good down below, I almost forgot the alpine pain.
