Skied the east ridge via a slightly different approach route described before. Got some local beta from the 10th Mountain Hut caretaker as we were starting out (from the lower hut parking). There is parking at the upper lot for a few vehicles, but the road isn't plowed all that frequently, so beware.
Overall, a good safe ski with only a few rocks to carefully slide through near the top. Only one or two meadow stomps on the way out, with a short ski carry up the road.
Very windy & cold conditions near the top froze my hands and camera battery
