3-4 large drifts still covering road to dam (parked 1 mile-ish) away (at road split to lower pond). Couloir in top to bottom (will have to pick through some sharks for summit ski). Perfect styrofoam early for crampons (started at 4:30). On summit 7:00-7:30. Descended milder chutes to east of main body for great glissade without interfering with anyone else‘s ascent. Softer snow for nice heel kicking down when not glissading. Perfect corn at bottom so I imagine skiing was great. ONE posthole just before short steep section at dam Back to car at 8:30. Forgot phone in car, so no pictures :

My fiancé and I were at Cristo Couloir yesterday too! Probably saw you. We hiked up and skied down around 10am or so. The snow was great corn snow for the lower 2/3rd of the mountain!

Were you the couple that spoke to the two guys (I was in flourescent green shell) resting on some rocks about half way down? Was a perfect day and great climb (my partner's first 14er and snow climb). Glad to hear you guys got some good turns in.
