We were at the Asulkan Cabin last weekend with the ACC. Given the conditions so far this season we hoped for great things, but in the end it was a more typical February weekend with mediocre visibility and higher avalanche hazard. Still pretty darn good!
We got in some skiing above the hut on Friday afternoon. Saturday morning dawned with heavy snow and high winds so we spent most of the day in the Toilet Bowl adjacent to the summer trail. Very good skiing but the steeper leeward slopes were getting a little touchy.
No matter how good the skiing is, doing short laps over and over again below tree line isn't exactly inspiring, so it was with some relief that we woke up on Sunday to a brief weather window that allowed us to get back above the hut.
Some new friends, some old friends, and plenty of good food and drink.
