8:00 am start on the approach to miners, Approach is icy and slippery so recommend crampons or equivalent. There was a melt freeze crust practically everywhere but there’s still good pockets to be found throughout, the choke has a heavy amount of Avalanche debris. Once into the open gully skiing is fun with about 10-15 cm of dust on crust mellow and supportive. We chose to ski the gully the whole way down and had to do 3 rappels (25m, and 2 3-4m) you can deffiantely boot back up higher and not need to rappel to be able to get around but we used a 48 m rope and that was plenty!
