Comments
Comments: Took groomed ski trails to just below the summit. Some trailbreaking required in the col between the two peaks. A couple of drifts of several feet but overall not much trailbreaking required. Wind was blowing steady so I'm sure what we broke out will quickly be blown back in. Some avoidable ice below the false summit of Saddleback as we headed into the col, could be an issue if more snow blows away.
