||Initially started up the access road in the gondola complex, which was mostly dry. Eventually hopped onto the perimeter ski trail, then took a short herd path a little above 3,000 feet to the Long Trail. Lots of wet/slippery rock on the Long Trail, as well as some stretches of running water on the way up to the col. Summit was in the fog with some wind (fog lifted around noontime).|
Descended generally on the Toll Road (closed for the season), then cut over on some ski trails (some are closed for construction of the new Sunrise six pack lift, but there are plenty of other choices).
Mostly cloudy with temperatures reaching the 70s down low.
