Late June and the mountain was still great for skiing. We hiked right up the Mountaineer Trail and then over to Silcox Hut and down the Silcox Hut Trail. Watched the US ski team train doing aerials and jumps. Pretty cool. Have seen pictures of this rocky landscape when the snow is gone and think it is nicer with the snow. Think would be more fun skiing it.
Not easy...it's a short climb, but a great workout if you're outta shape!
