 East Slopes   

We took the East Slopes route. It was a picture perfect late fall day with 10-15 mph wind gusts. We didn't use snowshoes becasue the trail was well packed the entire way. It appears that a ski descent from the summit is possible, but pretty thin. I would take my rock board/skis if I were going to give it a go. Once we got back to the car, someone driving a black Subaru station wagon had blocked us in. 1.25 hours later we finally got out. THANKS A TON!!! Kharma? I will try to get a few photos in the report for an update on conditions in the TM/M Range. . . .
