Using the Mountaineers Lodge as base camp, we headed out at 9 am to find beautiful sunny skies and consolidated snow we proceeded to make the loop around Table Mountain. At the saddle between Ptarmigan Ridge and Table Mountain, we Yo Yoed on wonderful corn. There was some surface sluffing, but nothing gave way. We were again rewarded with good snow sking down from Hermans Saddle to Bagley Lakes, although the sun made it sloppy on the bottom third of the run.

We went out again on Sunday to Lake Ann and had another great day. We spotted the other group that went over around the butte to the steeper slopes. Wow that looked like fun. We'll have to go back to do that sometime.
