 mt sherman from iowa gulch   

initiate to 7am, top to 13pm, return to 15pm. Good weather but a lot of wind. Ascension with skis with snow over the boot up to the beginning of the strong slope towards the hill. I come with skis almost up to the hill, moderate risk of avalanches (2) although with some accumulation in slopes E of the peak sheridan west. Very strong wind 90-100mph in the whole edge, very hard but excellent sight.

For the slope of fourmile very few snow or almost nothing. The descent at times with skis and at times on foot up to the fund of the vale in which the skis were essential. Not advisable route with skis unless you want to change them very soon and do not know like. The spades NE of Sheridan W, they seemed perfect to lower them. In short, a hard but perfect day.

Thanks for taking the time to put up you observations. Please dont shy away from these brief reports in the future due to a few bad votes. People on this site often value pretty pictures more than valuable conditions info.
