Comments: 7am start. 11 mile ski in from Williams Pond cutoff to Marston. Good skiing some snow sticking but went by fast. Signed in saw Jason B's 5:15 sign in and figured he would be coming down past us soon. Hard crust to ~ 2500 ft then breakable crust but Jason had done all the work. He did miss knocking snow off a few branches which will knock a few points off his overall evaluation report. Found his headlamp at the jct of N and S Brother saw his tracks headed off to South. Up to North Brother was better then we had envisioned. Wind picked up and there was no snow but we left on snowshoes and were amazed we broke no teeth heading to the summit and reverse. Lot's of balling on the ski back out had to keep a descent momentum or the ski's became snowshoes which was frustrating. 6 pm finish.
