We hear from our guides that the winds are low and at about 40 degrees the conditions are good for glissading. Follow weather on the mountain at http://forecast.weather.gov/
What is glissading?
Glissading is the act of descending a steep snow-covered slope via a controlled slide on one's feet or buttocks. Many climbers glissade (or slide) back down the mountain, using an ice axe and their feet to maintain control.
