Skied James today. Very little soft snow left from Friday's dump, but they might get more tonight. No avy danger, everything was windpacked really well, which was my plan in waiting since the last fresh snow. Really windy, but no wind on the glacier, which seems the opposite from what people usually say about this climb. A couple of spots closer to the summit that I had to be careful at due to exposed rocks, but I kept my skis on except for a short walk at the lake near the bridge. Lots of double-poling on the flats, but nothing crazy and was never tempted to put skins back on or walk it, it's *mostly* downhill. Should've waxed.
