Comments: 
Good corn skiing today. We dropped in about 1145 after waiting on the summit for things to warm up a bit. The wind and thin clouds kept the temps in check. Some deep ruts and frozen chunks present from previous parties. Try to ski early to safeguard against wet slide potential and help leave the slopes in good condition for those who follow.
