Elevation Gain: 1776 ft.
We met some friends at a pullout just west of the Highway 20 hairpin and got started climbing northwest toward Cutthroat Peak at around 10 AM. Most of us were on skis but a couple were on snowshoes.
We stopping climbing at about 12:30 PM and had lunch in a flat area below the peak.
The snow was very slushy on the way down. It was decent on skis despite some thin areas, but Vanessa was post-holing to her knees on showshoes. We were out around 2 PM.
