Athabasca Glacier icefall ski

Skied up through the Athabasca icefall on April 10th after hearing reports of walls of blue ice blocking the way. The upper central tongue which in years past has provided good skiing is now quite broken up, but ascending through it was manageable even if we did break a ski through into holes 3 separate times. We took the first tier of the icefall on climbers' left, almost right up against the bedrock, with little issue.
