view from "South Timpanogos"
"South Timpanogos" aka the 2nd Summit, is only 27 feet lower than Mt Timpanogos and has over 400 feet of prominence, but isn't honored with an official name. It is a steep, crumbly pile of unstable talus and scree (well, much like Timp itself, only without a trail), but it doesn't take long to get there from the glacier saddle, and rewards you with views like this.

is all the way to the lake. How does the upper part look, skiing-wise?

It looks great for skiing! It reaches nearly to the ridge crest all along the saddle, and is still pretty thick up there. I was very close to bringing skis on this trip, but I guess wimped out considering I'd have to carry them to two summits (since Bomber Peak was in the plans) or else leave them at the crowded saddle for the out-and-back to Bomber. The ice-axe-less glissade was exciting enough :)
