Arrived at Wing Ridge trailhead (6000 ft.) by 10 to be pleasantly greeted by clear skies after driving up through heavy fog. Followed good set of tracks up through burn area for about two hours. Snow varied from wind scoured crust along ridge line (7800 ft.) to powder in trees and north facing slopes. Area has been pretty skied out but were able to find some nice powder pockets. Great tree skiing back through burn area to trailhead. Great start to New Year.
