The author at the summit.
Its hard to see, but someone wanted to decorate the summit of Gobbler's with a sparkly somethingorother in the tree. The view north to the Sessions mountains seems decoration enough.
And yes, there was some skiing. There was about 10 turns in creamy powder on the 30-degree sub-ridge, the best of the year thusfar, before it gave way to crusts and avalanche debris from the last storm cycle.

Early morning skin up Butler Fork, with views to Kessler Peak and the Argenta slide path.
Making our way up to Mt. Wilson. The Wilson chutes (right) have not slid and look scary and the Rime-covered trees at the top are pointing to Wyoming and into the horrendous wind that is blowing much harder in the valleys. The air was still up high though...
Me and the Twin Peaks massif.
