Yep, we linked Forest Lakes Bowl (500' going quick), Challenger Glacier (good for 400' of steep and 400' of apron), and Skyscraper Glacier (600' to Bob Lake). Hero corn, fun climbing, and wiiiindy.
My buddy's black soft shell jacket liberated itself about 100' below the top of Skyscraper. If anyone snags it PM me for beer.

Better coverage than I would have thought after this past "season".
FYI...hit Sunrise Couloir on Evans on Saturday. Still skiable, but the runnels are getting fun. We dropped right as thunder cracked as we were pelted with graupel-ly THUNDERSNOW (I just wanted an excuse to type out that awesome word, hahah)!!!

Edit: I figured that if I'm going to be a smartass I might as well provide a little stoke. nrd, I was the one hollerin at you from the other side of the lake when you got to the bottom of skyscraper. Good day but CRAZY windy. I don't think I've ever gotten second tracks (in the summer) down it before. Super smooth. Now that it's getting some traffic I'm sure it's getting rough.

^My tracks were the ones on the skiers left along the rocks. Another person in our group was the one shooting photos off the top, making the 'douche' tracks.

We skied it this past Saturday AM. Pretty low snow. As you can see in Mike's pic you can't ski to the lake. Pretty dirty and rock strewn too. Lots of rock fall during our ski too. In fact...a 50/60lb rock flew past my buddy's shin doing mach looney SNAPPING HIS POLE COMPLETELY IN TWO. That freaked us out pretty bad.
Good news is there is no mandatory air/downclimb/sketchmo entrance this year, nicely rounded.
I love skiing!
