Someone left a purple vest, baselayer, and socks in the meeting room. I have it and will bring it back in the morning .

A few photos from the past couple days…

Finally made it up to the peak today. Went in for a late lunch and a bunch of people with peak ambitions started to gather in the meeting room. So we headed up. I'll probably forget a few, but @Vince @Unpiste Scott Tommy (handles?) @MattSmith Matt's friend,. On the way, we ran into @Tony who joined us.

Arrived at the Tram at just about 2:30. The visibility was starting to deteriorate, but slowly. We could still see the peak from the line. It was good of the people in the A-Z Chutes to provide a show to keep us entertained in line.

We waited just about 30 minutes. Unpiste, Vince, and I got on one tram and the rest got on the next. While we were waiting I took a couple photos and tightend my boots, Unpiste went into Patrol and asked about Big Couloir sign in processes, and VInce looked around.

The returning tram.

People have said that the top was disorienting and poorly marked, but that is no longer true. They have guide ropes up and signs where the direction to Liberty and to everything else splits.

Random people by the exit from the summit.

Once everyone else arrived we went to Marx and skied that. I was nervous at first and made some bad serpentine turns. Then i realized it was actually very easy and I was wasting vertical, so I started linking turns closer to the fall line. Very fun.

One thing that struck me was how short the face was from the top. A lot less than it looked from the bottom. I was just getting my rhythm and we were at the bottom.

If the line is not too horrendous I will go back again tomorrow.

I'm headed out Saturday morning. Looks like it's clear through West Yellowstone and Teton Pass is open. Great conditions all week. With my own large posse, I didn't get to ski with Pugskiers much. Thanks again to Gary for the great Lodge deal. Can't wait for the Jackson Hole party next year.
