Ascent Trip Report

-Ascent via ski up Southwest Slopes from Baskerville Winter Trailhead
- Descent via Southwest Slopes on Skis
- That was a ridiculous bushwhack...somehow was able to ski all the way to the summit. Everything below tree line was horrendously Unconsolidated, fun. Pretty bad faceted layer about 2 feet down above tree line, pretty dang bad. Not an issue on Bards Southwest slopes as they just aren’t steep enough. Spent quite a while digging pits and measuring slopes to be sure. Gorgeous day!
