Went for a 2 day solo ski of Eldorado Peak, inspiration glacier, and a bunch of other glacial hot laps. 30 hours, 9k vert skied, with 13k uphill vert. Camped up at the eldo high camp off the Eldorado Glacier. Light suncups but beautiful conditions once the corn set in after 11AM. Ran up from camp the first night to get in a sunset summit. 

What an incredible mountain and glaicial complex. Every party I encountered balked at the fact that I was skiing, but soon realized the folly of hiking downhill. Pour souls.
