PCMR from Empire Lodge in Deer Valley

Went out with my friend Bjørn today to do a PCMR higher mountain (the part that is not yet open) tour. We found a fair amount of chalky, wind affected snow. Sunrise had a solid two feet of it and we were able to ski it without hitting any rocks at any point. Actually we hit no rocks anywhere on this tour. Jupiter had more snow than I expected as you can see in the pictures below (click to enlarge):

Guardman's Pass.

Skadi working the powder, her preferred top layer is supportable crust...

Jupiter with Pioneer Ridge to its right.

Close up of Jupiter to show you all that snow.
