Ascent Trip ReportGreg and I got a great day of skiing in at Crystal mountain, with the ascent of the P2k being the highlight of the day, though not the best ski run of the day. Greg knew exactly how to get to the correct traverse and climb from the highest lift. The snow levels are incredibly low this year, so we actually walked over bare rock to summit. We met a "bro" guy on the summit. Overall, the snow wasn't the best, but Greg and I had a great time exchanging peakbagging stories on the lift and in the car. The chairlift did the majority of the gain, but there are 2 sections that you need to hike up to summit the peak.
