Able to keep skis on to the summit. The last steep pitch to the summit ridge had ~5cm powder over a supportive crust which provided the most pleasant turns of the day. Variable ski conditions otherwise.

The top of the south couloir is getting very thin. Couloir full of debris from wet loose avalanche; we boot packed up and it was unpleasant to descend. Always nice to ski off a beautiful Rockies summit!
