Designs on Camp Muir were dashed by low vis and snow at the parking lot. A consensus of 2 pinheads, a ski boarder and an old rando led us, on instruments, to Edith Basin and up the chute to Golden Gate. 3-4 inches of fresh snow on a solid base made for good skiing once the surface was stirred up a bit by the first skier so that the visibility was a bit better in the flat light. By the third run the base was starting to give way so we skied out down to the Paradise Valley road. All in all a great day in spite of the Braille skiing.
