Wanted to start the New Year off with a summit. Day started foggy and it was clearing by noon, even got a touch of sunshine on our climb. Shortly followed by increasing SW winds and cloud. Ridgetop was scoured down to rock/ice. The ski down was made treacherous by flat light and terrible wind affected snow. Good training day if you're into getting blasted on ridgetops and skiing upsidedown snow.
Snow conditions were: Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Cold, Windy. We rode: Alpine slopes, Dense trees, Mellow slopes, Open trees. We avoided: Convex slopes, Steep slopes. Riding quality was terrible.
Winds gusting to Extreme at ridgetop making it difficult to walk at times.
