We had the good fortune to closely follow another group without catching them until the upper bowl. Only one other party of two followed us. 8" of recent medium density on a rain crust. No recent avalanche activity; we did not dig a Rutschblock. Poor visibility (ice fog) kept us to the trees; never saw the upper mountain. Fairly good skiing. I lost my party's line on the exit, followed other tracks, and experienced the infamous Jim Hell in the lower brush.
