Nice outing on one of my Oregon favorites. Was able to drive a mile up the forest road towards the summer climbing trail then used a combo of easy forest travel and the PCT for pretty a direct route up. Skinned to the summit once I hit solid snow(6200'.) The more northerly lines off the summit looked amazing but being solo I didn't think it a great plan. The East face skied pretty amazing as well I dropped at 11:00 but 10 would have been better as I had a slow slug trail chasing me. Was able to connect snow patches (heavy use of spring forest ski technique) till I hit the PCT then walked to the beers.
