Some nice slopes up high, below the glacier. The snow was somewhat wind-damaged, though. Please note that the first thousand feet of this trip are trailess and a real brush bash. I was on skis, but it was snowshoe terrain. In general, the terrain isn't open enough to be fantastic for skiing Probably the main reason to go into the Silver Star Creek valley is to get a close-up look at Vasiliki ridge and Silver Star Mtn. They're very impressive with a coating of rime and backlit by the sun.
