More of a PSA than a TR. Lifts are now running at Hyak on weekends and holidays. Bulletproof 'roy in the morning that started softening up once the sun hit it for 2+ hours, i.e. Hidden Valley was running nice mid-day (except for the run under the lift).

Anyway, bluebird day with awesome views of Kendall Knob, Alaska, Rampart... For a moment we thought we might slog it to Silver Peak just for the heck of it, but then we decided to simply burn a few laps on the back side before calling it a day noon-ish.

Reason I'm posting in the TR section (vs. lift-served) is I was thinking it may be of interest to folks that Hyak may be a good option for some human-powered night or dawn patrols now that it's nicely groomed (or, maybe it's been so for a while, but not sure everyone knows ... I didn't : )

Lots of touring friends up there today.
