The forecasts were calling blue skies, the snowpack had stabilised sufficiently, the decision to go was quickly made the afternoon before. Of course the weather was not as stellar as we hoped, but such is life in the Rockies. Despite very low visibility which made our progress slow at times, we made the summit and ended up sharing it with a couple of other guys! Not exactly the best view from the summit (see picture below)... but skiing down was a blast - after we escaped the upper cloud we could see enough to know where to go and the snow was great.
We kept to the guidebook instructions which specify to keep your line of ascent to the right of the glacier/peak, but had to negotiate a couple of big crevasses - the other party we saw took a line to the left/center which appeared cleaner and definitely faster. Definitely bring crampons and an ice axe - the final scramble to the summit would be sketchy without them in most conditions.
