nice photo

you guys got any photos from the NE side of the peak on this day? wondering how well the snow sticks on that steep face and whether those gullys above the glacier are skiable.

Re: nice photo

Hey --- glad you like it. Nah, we stayed on the windward side of the crest, as things can get interesting on the leeward side --- especially with a normally-aspirated light aircraft. This was just after a snowstorm, so, no, I would not expect the steep and exposed ESW faces to hold lots of snow for long.
