Hike up to the ridge has intermittent snow. Wind today was sustained in the 30-40mph range but not as bad as sometimes it can get. I embraced it under all my layers. Incredible how the wind has scoured everything the last 200 feet or so before the top of the ridge. From there I hiked a little bit towards the second false summit towards Sniktau. Cornices are present and trail is in some places bare and in some has some wind blown snow. I then turned around and headed towards Cupid. Crossing the ridge and heading down was very windy but little snow to cross on the trail. I did wear my snowshoes the entire time but microspikes would have also worked. I did not go past Cupid. Abasin was bombing for avalanche and I saw the avalanche on Mt. Trelease from last week. Very sad to see.
