    Not really a snowboard friendly descent, nor were we splitters, but since i posted on the other sites, what the heck, i’ll copy/paste here:

    Skied pyramid pk Sunday 2/5, hoping to find some good corn on the E/SE aspects. Found a bit of everything from ice/rime ice to a couple of inches of windbuff on top of the ice, to breakable. Hardly any corn at all except some selected spots. … was our first time taking the twin bridges start instead of rocky canyon. In good conditions, this is a much better route than R/C, with great views along the whole way and better skiing terrain/aspect. Plus no dense trees to attack you on your way down 🙂
    Coverage down low looks iffy from the road, but it’s actually pretty good.. On the way down, just had to downclimb for 5 minutes when navigating the obstacles is too close for comfort, then ski back to the car once you hit the flats. Good day.

    Nice post…that cornice pic is amazing. The snoeshoe track is just on the edge, that dude was lucky!

    Thanks for the note about the Twin Peaks vs. R/C approaches.

    Great pics towelie! 8)

    Scary stuff on the cornice break. Been there, done that. 😯

    Now I walk waaaay back. Even when there is a skin track closer to the edge. Just because there is a track or foot prints there doesn’t mean its safe. More often than not the cornice is larger than you think.
