Snow Characteristics Comments
Punch crust getting off the summit led to beautiful smooth firm corn down the majority of the face. At the very bottom of the run I encountered loose wet snow.

As the days heat up be prepared to get up and off early before wet slides become a reality.

A great tour with Luna. We skied out to boren mesa before climbing back to the road. Not the most efficient exit, but a beautiful forest.
Luna sets a quick pace on the ascent.
