The pattern continued: aside from a somewhat brief period of powder skiing at the turn of the month, the ridge persisted... Nearby larger walks seemed like the obvious choice, solars skiing well but a still spooky PWL in the zone kept things conservative enough. Reynolds is an interesting peak with much potential on all aspects. Tried to motivate myself to plan drop to Stehekin but shuttling troubles were enough just to ski back homewards.

Thanks for the report, January,  42 ish years ago, three of cross country wallowed up the trail to the turn off, then wallowed our way into the basin, and spent the night. It was a darn cold night, took us most of the morning to make the summit, saw my first Ptarmigan in the upper basin.  The trip out was a harrowing affair, with dozens of spectacular falls, ankle top leather boots were not the right tool for the job. Your report has motivated me to go have another look, but I think I’ll wait for more forgiving skiing than you probably had.
