Cristo was fun yesterday. Clouds obscured direct sun for a few hrs in the early morning and spent about an hour or more waiting for the sun to cook the couloir. Skied down at 11am which was perfect. Other than a 10 ft rock section just below summit ridge and another 100' section in the upper couloir, a continuous ski like can be had down to the couloir's apron. About 2000' of the 2,500' can be skied. Another few days the middle of the couloir may be melted out, however.
